With its classical flaming urns, pinecone finials, and scrollwork, this fireplace fender is designed in a grand Neoclassical style. In its ornament, the piece emulates the style of furniture and decorative art produced in France in the Louis XVI period (1774-1792).

The fender can be made to fit any fireplace, simply by adjusting its length. It is comprised of a gilt bronze (ormolu) short and wide body, which is decorated with pierced, scrolled foliage, below of which is a dentil pattern border. The sides feature fluted, pilaster forms, topped by pinecone finials, and panels with shaped aprons, decorated with pierced scrollwork, edged with beading. The fender’s ends are ornamented with symmetrical flower motifs, flanked by supports, in the form of arrow quivers. Surmounting the ends are classical urns, with shining blue tôle (painted metal) ovoid bodies, on gilt bronze splayed feet. The urns are mounted with gilt bronze classical male bearded masks, draped with swags, and topped by gilt bronze lids with flame finials.
