Georgian Style Marble Surround | Striking Reclaimed Marble
PRODUCT ID: CONCEPT
A timeless Georgian style fireplace surround crafted from striking marble reclaimed from Mercers Hall, London.
This unique chimneypiece features a well-carved roundel "bullseye" design to the top of each reeded jamb, an iconic motif seen throughout the Georgian period.
This richly coloured marble was salvaged from Mercer's Hall in London. The Mercers’ Company was formally incorporated in 1394 by a Royal Charter granted by Richard II. Setup as a trade guild for the interests of exporters of woollens and the importers of silks, velvets, fine linens and other luxury fabrics. The location of the Mercers' home (originally a monastery), on the thoroughfare of Cheapside, has remained the same since the 14th century.
The simplicity and elegance of the form allow this particular piece to work in both a traditional and contemporary interior setting
