For sale is this exquisite, large, fully restored antique cast iron fire surround from the early 1900s. Generous in size, it is perfect for an open fire, stove or wood burner. It features wonderful simple casting, typical of the period. Reclaimed from a Welsh country property, this surround has been professionally stripped, cleaned, protective coated and burnished to bring out its original character.
Authentic with foundry marks on the reverse, it is made of solid, heavyweight cast iron in proportions befitting a large opening. It is in excellent condition for its age, undamaged 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 aged finish and the ironwork is proportioned perfectly. The simple geometric lines of the body complement the substantial original 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.
It has mounting lugs on the shoulders and beneath the mantle shelf for discreet and safe installation with a couple of strong screws. It also has cutouts at the rear of the feet to aid with installation over skirting boards, which are 13.5cm high (we can make them higher if required). 128.5m high (bottom of feet to top of mantle). 134cm wide at the mantle.117cm wide at outside edge of legs, widening to 122cm at outside edge of lugs. Inner aperture 95.5cm wide. There is no rear projection on this fire surround so it is a good choice to fit flush against a flat wall.
