George II Marble Chimneypiece

Circa 1740, in the manner of Inigo Jones, possibly by the workshops of Thomas Carter The Elder (1702-1756.)

Carters, brothers and son were highly successful practice of architectural sculptors specialising in chimney-pieces and monuments from 1734 to the late 1780s. Thomas Carter I (1702-1756) worked for John Cheere, and contributed two figures for Blair Castle.
