Clarence Arch tiled fireplace insert

We make Fireplaces from 1920s Art Deco fireplaces and classic Edwardian fireplace and mantel designs.
The Clarence is the original name for this style of fireplace arch made with 4 inch bull-nose tiles. In the 1920s this style of fireplace insert was probably the most widely produced of any fireplace. The opening tiles were mass produced by several different tile makers, many around Stoke on Trent and slab shops produced these in large numbers for the new suburban housing. Because of the number of fireplaces that we sell in this design, we have regressed slightly in our manufacturing techniques. We slip cast the tiles here in our Manchester factory. This process does give the tiles an attractive hand-made look and means that the glaze intensity will vary across the tile. We offer this 1920s arched fireplace insert in several versions, with a simple or a fan keystone design and with or without the Arts and Crafts style "dots".
Plain Tiles
£1 150.00

included and extra items

The above price is inclusive of a standard sized hearth. The hearth can be made to any size or shape, depending on the installation requirements.
The sizes given are for those fireplaces pictured here, but we do manufacture completely to order, and would make a fireplace for you at any reasonable size requested. Price will vary with size. As a rough guide, to increase the width of a fireplace by up to 4 inches will require £45 extra of tiles (plain tiles), to increase width of a fireplace by 5 to 8 inches will require £90 of extra tiles (plain tiles). To add 2 extra shoulders to an all tiled fireplace will add £190 to the cost of a fireplace.
A 16 inch fire-back for gas use is available for this fireplace. It is made from ceramic fibre and will increase the efficiency of our decorative gas fires. It is NOT suitable for use with solid fuel.
A "living flame" gas fire is a decorative fuel effect gas fire, designed to be used with a 16 inch ceramic fibre gas fireback. They are low efficiency, with a heat output of about 2 kW, but they have real flames.
A 16 inch fire-back for solid fuel is available, made from fired clay.
Solid Fuel Kit - grate and ashpan for solid fuel use
A standard N fret is available for this fireplace in matt black (other frets are also available )
