    A Victorian black slate arched fireplace, painted with intertwining Ivy and white Jasmine. The symbolism of flowers was a popular theme in Victorian Britain, with flowers adopted as symbols across the decorative arts. The art of floriography as it was called, was used to convey messages through the language of flowers. Ivy for example, represented eternity, fidelity and friendship. White jasmine, purity and amiability.
    Original hand painted decoration.
    English, circa 1870.

    The Dalquharran Castle Chimneypiece.

    A very rare, early Georgian, gently concave Portland Stone fireplace designed by Robert Adam and carved by the renowned Dutch stonemason Pieter Mathias van Gelder.

    A moulded shelf rests above a simple frieze centred by a panel carved in relief with a floor standing globe flanked by opposing sphinxes. The endblocks, with carved lyres and husk swags, sit above fern frond corbels terminating in festooned bucrane on fielded panel jambs raised on stepped footblocks.
    English, circa 1790.

    Dalquharran Castle in Ayrshire, Scotland, is regarded as one of the finest examples of Robert Adam’s Castle Style. His castles were unique in the respect that whilst the outside embodied the robustness associated with a castle, the inside was the embodiment of his restrained and delicate classical style. Dalquharran Castle was created for Thomas Kennedy of Dunure but is sadly now a ruin after the roof was removed in 1967 to avoid paying rates.

    The chimneypiece was originally installed in the round tower library of the Castle and epitomised Adam's classical elegance. The last image below shows it in situ in the ruins of the library. It is exceptionally rare to find such a piece and made even more remarkable as it survived virtually undamaged. There is a similarly fine chimneypiece at Seton Castle, Adam’s final project in Scotland.

    A rare Edward Pugin Gothic Revival fireplace, carved from Caen stone and marble. The fine rose red breccia marble shelf and carved undershelf are flanked by projecting faceted endblocks. Beneath the shelf are a pair of high relief spandrels, carved with ivy leaves and perhaps aspen leaves on the other side, flanking the pointed arch opening. The wide jambs are fronted by cippolino marble columns, with foliate capitals and statuary marble bases typical of E Pugin's work. The whole fireplace is raised on large faceted footblocks. English, circa 1860.

    Notes: Edward Pugin was the son of A.W.N Pugin, and an eminent architect in his own right. He was a leading proponent of the Gothic Revival style, and designed many ecclesiastical and domestic buildings. After his father's death, he was tasked with finishing many of his commissions, which led him to build his own successful portfolio. This particular fireplaces is almost identical to one found in Pugin's family house The Grange, in Ramsgate. The fireplace still in situ was designed by Edward as part of his remodelling of the family home designed by his father, and our fireplace is very likely to have been designed by him for the house too. It is probably the case, that as this house fell into a poor state of repair, the fireplace was removed and sold on.

    Notes: Caen Stone is a light and creamy yellow Jurassic limestone formed approximately 167 million years ago and quarried near the City of Caen in north western France. It was used in the building of many historic French churches and abbeys and was also partially used in the construction of Canterbury Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London in England.

    A fine Gothic Revival Caen stone chimneypiece, attributed to John Middleton (1820–1885). This grand chimneypiece has double columned jambs in a garnet coloured Serpentine marble which support a Languedoc marble shelf. The fireplace bears attributes of Norman ecclesiastical architecture, with zigzag mouldings framing both the frieze and the arched opening due not only to Middleton’s passion for church architecture but also reflecting the great religious revival of the nineteenth century; the Oxford movement perhaps being the most famous.

    It is likely to have come from a grand Gothic Revival House in Cheltenham or its environs. It would have no doubt come from a room of grand proportions and it certainly would have made a magnificent centrepiece.

    English, circa 1870.

    Notes: Orphaned from a young age, Middleton was left only a modest allowance which he used to train as an architect in the North of England. He did however manage to travel to Europe, which influenced his style a great deal. Middleton went on to design a number of churches, residences and even railway stations in the favoured Gothic style of the period. Some of the most beautiful residences and public buildings he designed were in Cheltenham, including the Cheltenham Ladies College. Nearly every private residence he designed had a grand chimneypiece. These Gothic creations were hewn from both stone and marble, with grand columns and bold carving, not so different in design from gothic sedilia.

Stone Fireplaces

Our range of striking stone fireplaces, mantels and chimneypieces spans a variety of different period styles, including Victorian, Georgian and Neo-Classical, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo examples.


A Brief Introduction to Stone Fireplaces

Stone can be an imposing material. It has been used to erect fortresses, cathedrals and pyramids. Five of the seven Wonders of the Ancient World were made from stone, so prized are the qualities and diversity of the material.

Nowadays, stone is perceived as rustic, the preserve of ancient farmhouses, châteaus and highland castles.

The properties of stone also vary enormously, ranging from the softest of limestones to the most durable of granite, and so the design varies to utilise the diverse qualities of the stone.

As such, unlike those made from many other materials such as marble, stone fireplaces are often architectural features rather than purely decorative. Sometimes set in to walls, the earliest stone fireplaces were constructed out of large blocks of stone forming rudimentary lintels and jambs.

Stone Arts and Crafts fireplaces were often used by architects such as Lutyens when creating interiors modest in appearance, with hand carved fireplaces and other details recalling the traditional form of earlier period styles.


Antique Stone Fireplaces

Stone fireplaces remain hugely popular, due to their ability to transform a room with an expressive echo of the past.

From the simple stone frame designed to capture and enhance the warm glow of fire, to a centrepiece etched with unique timestamps of bygone eras, a stunning antique stone fireplace can enhance any room - be it traditional or modern.

Our range of antique stone fireplaces is one of the country's largest and most varied. We endeavour to stock a fine collection to suit many projects and budgets.
