Circa 1650. Bolection Molding. Found in French, Belgian, German and English Baroque styles and later had great influence on American design. The look is classic and timeless. Ideal for a simple but still luxurious treatment. Each of our mantels are hand crafted and is an exact reproduction of a genuine antique marble mantel. Our mantels are cast from molds made directly from superbly carved antique marble pieces. This direct molding from the original captures all the fine hairline details. This gives our reproductions the feel, look, and character of the original. Quality and craftsmanship are apparent in every detail.
