1930s ceramic fireplace

We make Fireplaces from 1920s Art Deco fireplaces and classic Edwardian fireplace and mantel designs.
A small faience fireplace made from five large blocks and two smaller hearth pieces all glazed in a beige/brown swirling mottle. The two large hobs form a curving concave recess to the fire opening which is capped by a single large arch piece that continues the concave recess over the fire. The hearth is made from two large blocks with a raised edge that echoes the concave curvature around the fire as it falls from the edge to the general level of the hearth. Two small blocks at the base of the fire opening complete the fireplace. This fireplace was made by the Bast Fireplace Company in Horwich, Lancashire. A company that specialised in these fireplaces created from large faïence blocks. The blocks were slip-cast in large moulds, and then glazed. The finish is a mixture of more than one glaze colour,and the way that the glazes run together down the sloping faces of the blocks gives a stunning effect. It almost looks as if the fireplace is coming towards you at great speed. The Bast Fireplace Company was famed for it's Art Deco designs.
