The custom-made "Comtesse de Mailly" fireplace mantel has a highly elegant curved and scalloped shape, characteristic of the Louis XV style mantels.
The jambs are adorned with acanthus leaves that end in asymmetrical volutes, adding to the serpentine lines of the composition. The curved jambs imitate the deep wave of the shelf. The center of the entablature is adorned with a large foliaged shell, typical of Roccoco ornaments, flanked on either side by slightly curved hollowed molded panels.
We combine state of the art technology with a genuine in-depth knowledge from some of the most experienced master marbriers, artisans and sculptors. The sculptures are entirely hand-made, in keeping with traditions from past centuries and the French “bien faire”.
We specifically select marbles from quarries in France and Italy, take extreme care during production, and employ skilled artisans to hand make the fireplace mantels. These are the three ingredients which make every fireplace mantel built in our workshops a unique piece of work.
