Marble & Slate Fireplaces


Marble & Slate have been used in the the design of many modern and antique fire surrounds for the past 400 years. Although not the easiest material to manufacture from its beautiful range of natural colours, durability and superb finishes, it was made popular with the middle class and aristocracy who could afford such luxuries.Marble & Slate antique fireplaces have stood the test of time despite fashions forever changing. Designs from the Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian periods are very popular today. No wonder many reproduction fireplaces today are still based on these designs.

Victorian Era Design

Following the relative simplicity of the Regency period, Victorian fireplace design was characterised by an eclectic and unrestrained approach, incorporating elements of both classicism and naturalistic detail. The proportions of the fireplace reflected the architecture of the period as it became lower in height than its predecessors to suit the modest ceiling heights found in many 19th century buildings.Victorian fireplaces generally had mantel shelves of generous depth to accommodate the decorative imperative of the period to display as much ornament as possible.A new freedom in the use of architectural form and ornamentation emerged in the Victorian age which is reflected in the fireplace designs of the period.
