The Chevalier Mantel, a 13th century original, boasts an extraordinary stature and history. The mantel’s heavily sculpted legs rise up to two corbels decorated with gargoyle figures which support a shelf enhanced with blazons. The blazon on the right bears a lion and on the left an eagle. The central motif is carved in the shape of an “oriflamme” or medieval banner with pointed streamers.
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.
