Albemarle Art Deco all tiled fireplace

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

The Albemarle Art Deco all tiled fireplace has definite elements of ziggurat design influences. Stepped pyramids and Egyptian design motifs were commonly adopted in 1920s Art Deco designs. Stepped fireplace designs of this type were common from the 1920s until at least the late 1940s.

The fireplace has the common Art Deco dropped shoulder and the central detail resembles an inverted ziggurat. There is stick detail around the fireplace opening with the bottom sticks contrasting to make a stepped base pattern. These features of Art Deco design found their way easily into domestic fireplaces in the 1920s and 1930s as tiles were suited to the construction of linear stepped forms. It is much easier to cut a tile on straight line than a curve.

This fireplace design by 20th Century Fires Ltd was adapted from a fireplace design drawn up by customers and has proved to be one of our most popular fireplaces of the last decade. The body tiles, sticks and triangle details can be varied in colour of tile type to provide a number of distinct and highly individual fireplace designs.

This all tiled fireplace is a complete fireplace. The Albemarle detail is also available in a tiled fireplace insert that sits inside a wooden mantel.
