Antique French limestone fireplace surround, with a central palm frond pattern and a simple inset shape carved into each fireplace jamb. The palm branch traditionally symbolises victory, peace and eternal life.
This fire surround also has some fascinating 'ancient graffiti' written in French. This including several dates, such as 28th August 1821, and words including 'belle' carved into the mantle and jambs.
The inside surround dimensions are 159.5cm wide x 116.8cm high x 32cm deed, the outside measurements are stated below.
Previous fixing holes are present both on inside and outside of the surround, including three holes on top of the mantle. Some marks and chips due to use, plus a previously repaired hairline crack along the inside of the left hand jamb.
