This 17th century reproduction of a one-of-a-kind Gothic mantel features a richly decorated high relief frieze that rests on powerful jambs made of columns. The elaborate and intricate carvings include a pair of dragons that guard the central crest. A unique mantelpiece where the integrity of the original artist’s work remains astonishingly pristine. The execution of this masterpiece will have special appeal for the connoisseur.
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.
