Imposing antique French Neoclassical style hand carved pine chimneypiece and overmantel, flanked by two full height, arched cupboards. The overmantel has fluted columns framing a circular shaped painting of Athene, also known as Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, reason, arts and literature. The arched full height double cupboards are each 130w x 281h x 50d cm, the double doors are 89w x 239h cm. The surround opening is 90w x 104h cm. All dimensions are approximate as this piece was photographed in sections and collated to create the main image. Fascinatingly the French newspaper cutting shown, with the date 27th August 1893, was discovered in the back of the fire surround. There are some splits to wood, small chips missing from a few carved details and cracks in the canvas painting.
