1960s tiled fireplace with hood

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

This tiled fireplace is constructed largely from textured glazed tiles in a mushroom colour which are interspersed with flat tiles in a subtle mottled grey glaze.

It's most pronounced feature is the large tiled hood that covers the fireplace opening itself and is a typical of the 1960s.

The body of the fireplace curves out towards the vertical sides and has a projecting shelf edged with the textured tiles.

The hearth is subtly curved with a raised edge fender incorporated into it. The cut out in the back of the hearth shows that it was originally made for a 16 inch Baxi type fireplace with underfloor draught.

Some minor repairs have been made to the tiles on this fireplace.

Many different shapes of textured tiles, none of which to our knowledge are currently in production, were used to construct this classic fireplace.

It is extremely unlikely that such a fireplace will ever be made again. Get it while you can!
