    THE ITALIAN WARS
    A monumental and imposing richly carved French walnut trumeau chimneypiece. The generously moulded cornice lies above a dramatically carved arched central panel dominating the trumeau frieze and depicting a scene of battle probably relating to the eighth Italian War (1551-1559) when Henry II of France declared war against Charles V ruler of the Holy Roman Empire. The panel is flanked on either side by two large carved horned and winged mythical beasts and the whole rests on the wide and sturdy fireplace surround beneath.

    The deep shelf of the fireplace surround, with its carved alternating bossed frieze, sits above a pair of robust fluted columns with Corinthian capitals and stepped footblocks and the deep set fireplace opening is topped by a finely carved and decorative border detail.
    French, mid 19th century.

    Notes: The 1551-1559 Italian War was also known as the Habsburg – Valois War. There were a series of conflicts from 1494 to 1559 that involved, at various times, most of the city-states of Italy, the Papal States, most of the major states of Western Europe and the Ottoman Empire. Originally arising from dynastic disputes over the Duchy of Milan and the Kingdom of Naples, the wars rapidly became a general struggle for power and territory among their various participants, and were marked with an increasing number of alliances, counter-alliances and betrayals.

Antique Wooden Mantels

Antique wooden fireplaces have been enjoyed for centuries. From the earliest examples, heavily carved and worn with time, to strikingly simple Arts and Crafts fireplaces, we try to stock a variety of styles and sizes. Antique wooden mantels are a fabulous way of injecting character into a property, or just making a statement. The appeal of wooden mantels is perhaps their diversity. Wood is a fantastic material to carve, capable of being hewn into numerous forms and being used on projects that vary in scale enormously. These Antique wood fireplace mantels encapsulate a moment in history and a period style.

Antique Oak Fireplaces

Antique oak fireplaces conjure images of inviting country houses with a crackling open fire, a place to welcome guests and family members. Antique oak fireplace mantels bring to mind a rustic country interior, with a substantial focal point and an inviting open fire. They have been a focus of domestic life for centuries. Oak fireplaces mantels range from the earliest of inglenooks to the rustic charm of the arts and crafts movement.

Antique Pine Mantels

Pine fireplace mantels were used widely in the 18th century, and perhaps most famously by the renowned Architect Robert Adam. The most highly sought after of antique pine mantels are almost certainly those that can be attributed to Adam, or those which closely resemble his iconic neoclassical designs with gesso decoration. These antique pine fireplaces were often painted so as to resemble their more expensive marble counterparts or to suit the colour scheme of the room. Antique pine mantels are very rarely found in their original paint, so can be left bare, or painted to a desired finish.

Antique Wood Fireplaces

Wooden fire surrounds are easy to look after, as they can be treated much like antique wooden furniture. We often buy chimneypieces that have been worn and damaged with time, and in our workshops we can restore them to their former glory. Antique wood fireplaces are often carved from rare and beautiful woods that are hard to source today. To buy antique is a more environmentally friendly way to source pieces for the home as buying an antique means that new trees don’t need to be felled and you avoid the risk of purchasing unethically sourced wood.
