Bedford Mantel with Overmantel

Bedford Mantel with Overmantel: An English early Georgian-style piece. The frieze shelf, with its classical profiling, is a textbook example of how the Georgian-style is built on the preceding classical Palladian-style. Lamb’s tongue and egg-and-dart accent the frieze profiles. The feminine floral detailing in the swags, bluebells, and acanthus motif are perfectly offset by the masculine weight of the proportions to achieve a well balanced piece for use in the most formal settings.
