An early 18th century stone cartouche in the Auricular style, mounted on a new slate background in wrought iron frame. The cartouche is assymetrical, the curved, flowing lines of the scrolled forms, typical of Rococo design, adding movement and fluidity to stone. The shield is surrounded by scrolling foliage, hinting at underwater reference, with details of shells and pearls emerging from the solidified, organic mass.
