The Cliveden chimneypiece
This delicately carved white marble mantelpiece of late 18th century Italian design has a rectangular moulded shelf above a frieze centred by a carved relief depicting a pelican attacking a snake. This is a reference to the attribute of Charity, one of the “foremost theological virtues”. The jambs are of square columnar form headed by plain capitals and carved flower-heads, vine leaves and tendril paterae, sitting above classical scrolling handled urns.
