A tall and pretty, reclaimed, carved pine fire surround. The surround is likely to be Mid-Century and is a vintage reproduction of traditional designs of the late Victorian period. The fire surround has a very attractive appearance, with carved flowers, berries and ribbons in the centre of the crossbar and acanthus leaves on each side, in relief. There is an egg and dart border under the mantel, a flower border around the fire opening and a delicate border around the mantel edges. The pine has been sanded to bare wood and is ready for purchaser to add a finish to suit, such as a wax. The fire surround could be paired with a cast iron insert or fire basket or used for decorative purposes. The surround has a rebate behind the fire opening edges for accommodating slate slips. We can supply slate slips for the surround for an extra £195. Please let us know at time of purchase if you would like slate slips and we can order them for you, please contact us for further details. The surround is tall and if it is too tall we can reduce the height of the legs, please contact us to discuss this. The surround is in good reclaimed condition with some signs of use, as expected. There are some small knocks and chips to the pine, especially the mantel edges and to the decorative carved pieces. The pine has some scratches and marks. There are some surface cracks along the crossbar and to the carved pieces. The back of the mantel has a cut mark and some staining. There is some colour variation to the pine and the carved design has some residue soot. The base of the legs have some discolouration. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire surround has a very ornate look and is ideal for a period home, making a fantastic addition to a fireplace.
