Rustic, soft grey limestone Louis XIV fireplace mantel from France.
This unique 18th century mantel has a very nice paneled and decorated frieze with a separate strong profiled top shelf. The paneled jambs have nice overhang, bringing the hearth more into the room.
This fireplace has some old restorations and repairs, we left it "as is".
It still has a lot of unrestored patina, this gives it a very nice original vibe and feel.
