A stunning reproduction of an early 17th century Gothic mantel. Acquired from an antique dealer in France, the original is a one-of-a-kind. The Bourgogne features richly detailed carvings with crisp Gothic ornamentations. The frieze is entirely covered with very high-relief sculpture (folded fabric pattern). A central cartouche presents a shield carved with “Fleur de Lys”.
By extracting the essence of the Scagliola technique, Thierry François created an original process by which all forms of hand-crafted limestone — including marbles — have the look of natural, hand-cut stone. This extraordinary stone inlay and “cross batch” technique is one-of-a-kind.
