Item specifics

Type: 1930 bedroom fireplace External Width: 76cm
Fireplace Type: All-In-One Fireplaces Internal Height: 71cm
Sub-Type/ Material: Iron Internal Width: 35cm
External Height: 115cm
Original cast iron 1930 fireplace.  Removed from a bedroom when a chimney breast was removed.  The fireplace has been painted white, but this can be removed if a plain cast iron finish would be preferred.

The first photo here shows the fireplace in situ before it was removed - included in this sale is the surround and mantlepiece, grate (where the fire would be lit), the curved front piece at the bottom which stops any ash flying around the room and the stones which sit behind the fireplace (see details below).  The tiles on either side of the surround are a very attractive burgundy red.  Unfortunately, we no longer have the tiles shown in the hearth.

The second photo shows the surround and hood (which hinges outwards to ensure all smoke from a lit fire is drawn up the chimney) where they are currently sitting in my basement.  As you can see, the red tiles are still intact and attached.

The third and fourth photos (again, taken in my basement where the pieces are currently stored) show the cast iron insert, together with fire grate, curved bottom front piece and shaped pieces of stone which sit above, behind and either side of the fireplace when installed.  Unfortunately, one of the side pieces is broken in 2 as shown in photo number 4, but the 2 pieces fix snugly together and this could be permanently fixed with suitable adhesive.  The third photo, shows the stone sitting on the angled piece at the top, back of the insert - I couldn't balance the other pieces of stone to show you where they go, but hopefully you can see how they match the pieces in the cast iron insert.  I understand that the reason that these pieces are stone rather than cast iron is that when a fire is lit, they heat up and radiate heat back into the room.

Some measurements:
  • Mantle depth 14cm
  • Mantle width 85.5cm
  • Surround width 76cm
  • Surround height 115cm
  • Surround depth 2cm - this is at the side, the surround and hearth are both made to bow out a little in the middle.
  • Hearth opening width - 35cm
  • Hearth opening height - 71cm
  • Hearth depth - 28cm (this would obviously go back into the chimney.

Lots of information here, but I wanted to attempt to describe how it all goes together.  Please let me know if you have any queries.

Collection only please - will fit in the back of a car.  (That said, we will consider local delivery for a small additional fee - please let me know if this is of interest).
