American Victorian Fireplace Mantel Fireplace Surround Architectural Antiques

An exceptional and rare, tall carved oak Art Nouveau chimneypiece with an integral decorative cast iron hooded insert set between two panels of themed red tiles beneath the centred embossed copper plaque. The carved athemion detail echoed on the insert and tiles, together with the graceful sweep of the arch framing the opening, flanked by twin slim reeded columns, is very typical of the designs of this period. English late 19th early 20th century.
