Overmantel 

English, Somerset, c.1630

Surely you've not got a flat screen TV over your fireplace? Here's a chance to swap it out for something real! Profusely and deeply carved: the tree of life in an applied architectural arch at the center, flanked by two panels of flowers and foliage flanked in turn by an Atlas and a Caryatid. And all the frames carved with lunettes and running cable! It's a winner.
