A carved fire surround from Sir Winston Churchill’s drawing room. This carved pine fire surround combines elements of both Rococo and Palladian designs. It has a shaped cornice above a frieze of foliate arabesques and floral garlands centred on a raised panel of confronting C-scrolls, leaves and flowerheads. The supports have recesses at the corners and the whole inner edge is decorated with a gadrooned border. English, circa 1910.
