In the restoration we have managed to retain the original mantle shelf. We've stripped, and wire brushed the surround, before finishing it in the traditional black grate polish, the final result looks superb.It is a wonderful example of British architectural heritage which would typically have taken pride of place in a downstairs room or large bedroom. Generously proportioned, it is made of solid cast iron in lovely condition. I can organise a courier if you like (I need your post code for a quote) or help load it in the back of your vehicle if you prefer to collect in person. Shelf 40.5 inches x 7 inches. Body 36 inches (wide, at the bottom). Opening perfect for a wood burner/ stove. 28.5 inches wide x 32inches high. Please note that the hearth, stove and wooden back are not included in the price, they're only used for photographic purposes. This sale is for the fire surround only. For any more information I'm always happy to help, please don't hesitate to contact me.
