A large, handsome, original Art Nouveau painted mahogany fire surround, C.1920s. The surround has a very elegant design with corbels under the mantel and a shelf than runs along the crossbar. The mantel has a decorative border around the edge and there are grooves than run down the legs. The fire can be paired with a cast iron fire insert or trim and has been photographed with a trim for illustrative purposes. PLEASE NOTE the cast iron trim is not included in the listing and is sold separately, please contact us for further details. The surround has been painted white but there are some cracks, chips and losses to the paint and purchaser may wish to strip and re-finish the surround to suit. The back edge of the legs that sit against the wall have been extended and we believe the work may have been carried out by the original makers of the fire as the mouldings are the same and the workmanship is very good. The fire surround is in good solid condition but there are some signs of age, as expected of antique items.  The middle of the mantel has a knock and there are some further knocks and chips to the wood. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire surround is a wonderful period piece that would add great character to a home and finish a fireplace nicely.
