If you are looking to add formality to a room, this English Federal-style Robert Adam (1728-1792) marble mantel is an exquisite start. Featuring a center tablet of delicate florals and corner blockings of acanthus leaves, the mantel is supported by slightly tapered legs and solid plinths topped with intricately-carved, scrolling capitals.
