Edwardian Arch with hand dipped tiles

We make Fireplaces from 1920s Art Deco fireplaces and classic Edwardian fireplace and mantel designs.
This Edwardian arch fireplace first became popular around 1905 and was still an incredibly popular design of fireplace insert throughout the 1920s and 1930s. This popular version of the fireplace is made using hand-dipped fireplace tiles. We glaze the plain 6 x 2 inch tiles in a way that produces a variety of shades and tones of colour between and across the tiles. This closely reproduces the hand crafted feel of the original Edwardian fireplaces. The fireplace has a simple arch with the main body made of brick-like cross bonded tiles. This style of fireplace insert, definitive of the Edwardian era, is hand made at our Manchester factory, using virtually identical skills and techniques to those that the the original fireplace makers would have used. These lighter, brighter and very reflective tiled fireplace designs became very popular after Queen Victoria's reign ended. For much of her reign after the death of Prince Albert black had been the dominant colour for cast iron inserts and mantels. Towards the end of her reign though things brightened up with the advent of Art Nouveau tubelined tiles and matching cross-bonded tiles for the hearth. This led to the manufacture of all tiled inserts to the extent that by 1914 and the outbreak of World War One black cast iron fires were on the verge of extinction and glazed tiled fireplaces like the Edwardian Arch and variants of it were the norm.

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.
