From Italy, this elegant fireplace mantel has been hand-carved from nine pieces of limestone. The cream-colored stone has developed a nice green, black, and gray patina and was intentionally distressed to give the appearance of antiquity. Several layers of molding on the lintel, including a deep cavetto incut, soften the relatively straight lines of the mantel. The neutral color and the size of our limestone mantel allows it to be used with just about any style of design, from a living room or den, to a bedroom.
Firebox opening: H – 37, W – 42.
CONDITION: Very good condition with intentional distress, presenting as rubs, losses, and buildup. Trace of a small restoration to the edge of the firebox.
