Stovax Decorative Arched Insert Fireplace
The Stovax Decorative Arched Insert fireplace pre-dates the Classical model by some 30 years, having been designed around the time of the Great Exhibition in 1851. Accordingly, it incorporates elements of Greek and Roman detailing which were frequently adopted as ornamentation, itself a reflection of Britain’s growing sense of grandeur and Empire.
The Stovax Decorative Arched Insert Fireplace is available in three finishes: traditional matt black, highlight polished and fully polished. A gas fire option is available.
Insert fireplaces are so called because they have built-in firebacks and are designed to be inserted into chimney openings measuring approximately 36” x 36” (915 x 915mm) or larger. In appearance, these can be either completely cast or cast with slots for decorative tiles. The former are generally earlier designs whilst cast iron fireplaces incorporating two vertical ceramic panels became particularly fashionable from the mid-1880s onwards.
Homes with a chimney opening measuring approximately 36″ w x 36″h (915 x 915mm) or larger will be able to slot in a Stovax insert fireplace.
