The Chevalier Mantel- Francois & Co.
The Chevalier Mantle features an extraordinary stature and history. The 13th century original, exhibited in the Francois & Co showroom in Atlanta, belonged to notable French actor Maurice Chevalier. The mantel is heavily sculpted legs rise up to two corbels decorated with gargoyle figures and support a shelf decorated with blazons. The blazon on the right bears a lion and on the left an eagle. The central motif is carved in the shape of an 'oriflamme' or medieval banner with pointed streamers.
