French & Italian

Our Range

During the second half of the 18th century the extravaganza style of the Rococo period widely associated with French fireplaces and characterised by carved serpentine friezes and angled jambs. was replaced by a stricter adherence to the classical order as Neo-classical style came to dominate during the reign of Louis XVI.

The Chesneys French collection contains fine examples of both these styles, which remained popular throughout the 19th century and became trade items imported into England on a significant scale during the Victoria era.
