Our traditional fireplaces date from the late Georgian style that was heavily influenced by Greece and Rome while the Victorians returned to the british style of elaborate decoration. At the turn of the century fireplaces became less ornate with an eclectic mix of Influences such as the Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movements.These days quite often the designs will have been updated by using limestone as a material of choice.
This early 19th century mantel reflects the essential design quality of the era; classic proportions, clean uncluttered lines and perfect balance. The moulded legs and frieze, combined with fine roundels and reeded shelves add up to an elegant whole. Appropriate for Regency or Georgian houses, this fireplace would also fit comfortably with Victorian, Edwardian or present day decor. Available as Georgian Roundel with reeded jambs and frieze.
