Postwar tiled fireplace

We make Fireplaces from 1920s Art Deco fireplaces and classic Edwardian fireplace and mantel designs.

This tiled fireplace in pale pink with light blue detail and marbled white opening tiles is very typical of the sort of fireplace that was installed in the 1940s, once the war was finished.
They were simple and relatively cheap to make, but were a very functional fireplace. Often installed with a back boiler for water heating. An unadorned fireplace such as this one would usually be found in the every-day room of a 1940s home, rather than the "Parlour" .
The pastel colours of the tiles and the "drop-shoulder" style of the fireplace are typical of the era.
This fireplace was featured in an exhibition called 'Britain in the Fifties' at the Compton Verney Museum and subsequently transferred to the Time and Tide museum in Great Yarmouth for their 'Never Had It So Good' exhibition and then in 'The Council House' at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery. This makes it one of our most travelled fireplaces ever and it has been viewed by thousands of visitors to these museums in 2016 and 2017.
