This is a stunning example of arts and crafts design.It is known simply as Register 114 and we have managed to trace down the original entry on the makers catalogue. Fireplaces in this style are decorated with emblems of natural beauty and intricate patternwork. The style developed as a reaction to 19th century industrialism. This example is resplendent with birds, berries, sunflowers and floral urns.
This particular surround is adorned by a serene figurehead in the centre of the frieze. A depiction of sunlight and sunbeams is found in each corner of the aperture. It is made of solid, very heavyweight cast iron in fully restored, excellent condition.
