Design for a Chimneypiece

A variation of the design of 1938-88-8206. The rinceaux spring from a palmette of ears of grain, with birds sitting beside. Shadow, background, base line, scale like that in 1938-88-8213. At left is the plan of the lateral part, at right, of the right half of the entablature.
