Mantelpiece with relief of Paris and Oenone, Jan Baptist Xavery, 1739
This mantelpiece was made for the principal room of the house at 48 Rapenburg in Leiden, where Diederik, Baron van Leyden, lived. Xavery also made a marble relief for each overdoor and probably designed the decorative stucco ceiling, which surrounded a large painting by Jacob de Wit. The walls were hung with tapestries from Brussels. This created an impressive ensemble.
