BOURGES GRAND MANTEL – OVERMANTEL
Elegantly proportioned Regency/Rococo-style mantel. The details of both the mantel and optional overmantel are stylistically typical of the Regency period (from the high Classical period of Louis XIV, culminating in the construction of Versailles and the Rococo-style of Louis XV). A serpentine shelf lays over a paneled frieze centered by a bluebell and acanthus- adorned cartouche. Bordering the cartouche is acanthus and floral decoration. The endblocks are carved with acanthus foliage over graciously scrolled side consoles. A larger version of the Bourges mantel which will accommodate larger fireboxes and complement taller ceilings than the standard Bourges.
