The Heronden is a very detailed English mantel with a dentil cornice and delicately carved frieze. The center tablet features a vase surrounded with swag and foliage motifs. The legs are ornamented with carved bellflowers tied with ribbons and surmounted by end-blockings with Athenian urn enrichments.
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.
