Handley 1920s all tiled fireplace

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

The Handley is an all tiled fireplace in a style that was popular throughout the late 1920s and 1930s.

This fireplace is a faithful copy of the original form, first manufactured in the 1920s, except that the original was made in mottled brown and pale green tiles.

The fireplace features design elements reminiscent of skyscrapers in the tile colours in the stepped columns to either side of the fire opening.

The stepped 8 x 4 inch fireplace opening blocks are hand made and glazed in our factory in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

The fireplace is finished with a distinctive chamfered cornered kerbed hearth.

The smaller tops of many of these fireplace designs were a deliberate reaction to the huge mantelpieces of the late Victorian era.

Victorian tastes embraced large amounts of bric-a-brac and mantelpieces were used to displayed everything but the kitchen sink.

Much 1920s design had "clean lines" as a dominant theme and the small tops discouraged clutter.
