The configuration of the present chimney piece with its central tablet flanked by swags of fruit between bold corbels issuing bell flowers closely relates to a design published in Isaac Ware, A Complete Body of Architecture, 1756, pl. 85. A Chimneypiece in the dining room at Picton Castle, Pembrokeshire by Sir Henry Cheere illustrated in John Physick, Designs for English Sculpture, 1680-1860, 1969, fig. 92, also displays similarities in respect of the carving to the central tablet and the bold fruiting swags which flank it.
