An exceptional and rare carved oak Art Nouveau chimneypiece with an integral decorative cast iron hooded insert set between two red tiled panels beneath the centred embossed copper plaque. The carved athemion detail echoed on the insert and tiles, together with the graceful sweep of the arch framing the opening, flanked by twin slim reeded columns, is very typical of the designs of this period. English, circa 1900.
