Stanshall Arts and Crafts tiled fireplace insert

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

This design of fireplace insert became popular in larger homes from about 1905 to 1910 and remained in production throughout the 1920s.

It is very much an Arts and Crafts influenced design with the tiles often being all hand glazed. They usually featured copper insets. Sometimes tiled opening blocks to the fireplace opening were preferred.

It is the subtle variation in shade of the tiles, especially on the larger curved blocks, that give this insert a texture not found in mass produced tiles.

The large hobs to the sides of the fireplace are another distinctive feature of this Edwardian fireplace design.

The hearths that accompanied this type of insert would have been laid flush with the floor and been in matching tiles, cross - bonded as bricks.

The version shown here features an original copper frame and hood and was made as a commission.
