Spectacular antique marble fire surround crafted in Statuary marble, with Lapis Lazuli inlay.
This magnificent fireplace surround was removed from a large house in Hertfordshire, once owned by the shipping magnate Sir Frederik William Lewis (later Lord Essendon).
Lord Essendon made numerous improvements to his house, and it was he who installed features such as this enormous fireplace surround.
This surround is an excellent example of the Georgian Revival style that occurred during the early years of the 20th Century. Due to its large size, this surround would be ideal for creating an 'inglenook' style fireplace.
Lapis Lazuli is a very highly regarded and sought after stone. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honour, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth.Dimensions:
