Object Description

A stunning antique white and red jasper marble fireplace, reclaimed from Grimston Park and dating from circa 1840. This beautiful mid 19th century fire surround pairs veined white marble with vibrant red jasper, a captivating Italian marble with dynamic shades of gold and white throughout. This contrast of colour and natural pattern creates a sophisticated chimneypiece, further enhanced by a decorative frieze tablet and corner blocks carved with drapes and oval inlays of red jasper.

Provenance: Grimston Park

Situated in the picturesque North Yorkshire countryside, Grimston Park is a grade II listed Georgian property and estate. The settlement has existed since Viking times and has been occupied by various owners over the centuries including the Vavasours, Fairfaxes and in the 17th century, the Stanhope family who in 1603 entertained James I of England at Grimston.

In 1839, John Hobart Caradoc, the second Lord Howden, acquired the property following his father’s death and commissioned English architect, Decimus Burton, to rebuild the house. His brief included redesigning the old house in an Italianate style.
