1950s Vintage all tiled fireplace

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

This is highly complex all tiled fireplace made by H&E Smiths of Stoke on Trent in the early 1950s.

It is made with the Van Delft range of tiles with a purple heather tint and several moulded blocks in a beige/brown mottle.

The fireplace is unusually deep (8 inches) and the sides and top are decorated with a band of 2 inch square Van Delft tiles in the heather tint.

Starting from small block feet the whole back panel is framed with the kerb tiles split lengthways and a raised rib inserted at the join.

The header section has angled tile panels to either side and a central bowed panel made from edge glazed finger tiles only 0.375 inches wide.

The shelf separating the header from the fire opening section is supported on a row of right angled fingers similar to the narrow, horizontally laid fingers between the chamfered opening blocks.

The hearth has a raised kerb made from these blocks with square bosses at the corners.
