1950s Tudor arch tiled fireplace
The Tudor arch fireplace was one of the most popular fireplaces made in the 1950s.
As its name suggests the prominent feature of this fireplace is the long shallow arch above the fireplace opening. The fire opening sides are made from chamfered opening tiles, and another distinctive feature of this fireplace are the tiles forming the integral kerb in the hearth. These hearth kerb tiles were commonly known as "hockey sticks" because of their distinctive shape.
The hearth for this particular fireplace has been made to go with a Baxi underfloor draught type fire, but we do have enough spare matching tiles to make the hearth suitable for any open or gas/electric fire.
The fireplace is a full 6" thick, with a small central well on the top.
Its heavyweight concrete construction make this 1950s fireplace very robust. The fireplace and hearth together will weigh in at about 8 cwt.
It was manufactured by H and E Smith in Stoke - on - Trent , and the construction quality is exceptional.
It is finished in Van Delft glazes which were exclusively used by H & E Smith (formerly Smith and Warilow)
These glazes are extremely hard wearing, and except for the inevitable wear on the top edge of the hearth lip this fireplace, and the corners of the small hobs to the sides of the fire opening, this fireplace looks as well as when it was first made.
