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”.
All of our stonework designs can also be hand-carved to order from the finest hand-picked French limestone and Italian marble. Whether your project requires blocks cut-to-size, or hand-carved, we insist on strict pre-selection criteria for our slabs and blocks. Our mantles are also available hand-carved from the very best French limestone or Italian marble. These wonderful reproductions are mirror images of the original antiques.
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.
