Antique Victorian hopton wood limestone fireplace with narrow twin corbels to the top of each leg supporting the shelf. Plain jambs and frieze show off this beautiful fossil limestone. Hoptonwood limestone also known as Derbyshire limestone is instantly recognizable for its high density of Crinoid fossils. Crinoid fossils were laid down over 300 million years ago, pre dating the dinosaurs! At the time this park of the UK that would become the English Peak District was the bed of a sub-tropical shallow continental shelf sea. Repair to upper left hand leg face below the corbels. See final image.
