This piece has been conceived with a sense of the architectural 'laws' written about by Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) and widely disseminated across Europe through the publication of his four books on architecture (1570). The influence and re-examination of classical architecture at the time is evidenced in this lot through the use of the classical orders in a specific sequence. In the lower section, the fire surround, there are bold fluted Ionic pilasters. In the upper section, the overmantel, there are fluted Composite pilasters.
