For sale is this exquisite, large, fully restored antique cast iron fire surround dating from the mid Victorian period. Generous in size, it is perfect for an open fire, stove or wood burner.
It features wonderful castings depicting classic floral roundels across the frieze. On the reverse it carries authentic foundry marks dating it to 1865. Reclaimed from a Warwickshire property, this surround has been professionally cleaned, protective coated and polished to bring out its original character.
It is made of solid, heavyweight cast iron in perfect condition and proportions befitting a large opening. It is in excellent condition for its age, with a beautiful patina.As with most fire surrounds of this type, the simplicity of design is what makes it very attractive. The traditional cast gives it a beautiful finish and the ironwork is proportioned perfectly. The simple geometric lines of the body complement the exquisite and substantial frieze and mantle shelf. As with all of our restorations, it may bear the odd very well concealed mark from the restoration work but this is extremely well done and simply adds to the character of the item in our view. With this particular item we added a set of freestanding antique bars during restoration. It has mounting lugs on the shoulders beneath the mantle shelf for discreet and safe installation with a couple of strong screws. 123cm high (bottom of feet to top of mantle).
108cm wide at the mantle. 96cm wide at outside edge of legs, widening to 102.5cm at outer edge of lugs.There is only a tiny rear projection on this fire surround of no more than 1cm, so it is a good choice if you are looking for something to fit against a wall without a chimney opening. We sell online only to keep costs to the customer as low as possible and love giving and receiving! Great feedback on our beautiful restorations. Don't hesitate to ask us any questions.
