The Cheere chimneypiece
An imposing and magnificent large George II, statuary and Sienna Palladian chimneypiece.
The inverted breakfront mantel shelf is carved with acanthus leaf, egg and dart mouldings. The Sienna marble frieze is centred by a classical urn, flanked by trailing vines and grapes, while the elegant opening is surrounded by plain white marble fillets outlined with egg and shell mouldings. The delicately carved, trailing vines flanking the classical urn on the frieze may indicate that this mantelpiece was originally intended for use in a dining parlour. The vine is the attribute of the personification of autumn, the season often associated with Bacchus, the classical god of wine.
