A very elegant reclaimed, original, Victorian Carrara marble fire surround. The surround has a beautiful design with ornate corbels under the mantel.
The marble is of a good quality and has the particularly attractive blue-grey veins that Carrara marble is famous for. The fire is of a large size, ideal for a living or dining room, and can be paired with a cast iron insert or fire basket within a hearth. The surround is complete but comes in separate pieces and will need to be fixed to the wall by a qualified builder. The fire is in good antique condition, with no major breaks or cracks, however there are some signs of use and slight damage, as expected. There are some knocks and chips, especially to the back edge of the mantel, feet and the sides of the legs.
There are some scratches and marks, especially to the feet and crossbar when the legs meet it. There is a chip to the base of one corbel. The back of the mantel has some blue staining. Please see pictures for condition details.
The fire surround has a wonderful period look, highlighting fantastic Victorian design. The fire surround is perfect for adding style and character to a hearth.
