An elegantly carved Louis XV fireplace in black Belgium marble.

This marble is pure black, without veins, highly sought after for its decoratives qualities even within the context of contemporary interiors.

Below the moulded, serpentine-shaped shelf sits a panelled frieze with a deeply carved, reversed shell from which a bell flower drops.

 The top of the shaped, panelled jambs are decorated with scrolls and richly carved shells.
