Antique Cast Iron Fireplace Surround with Rams Head


An original Victorian cast iron fireplace surround with floral motifs.

This antique fireplace has wonderful cast floral detailings that are brought together by a very interesting deep-profile ram's head that sits centrally on the lintel.

This is a magnificently detailed chimneypiece. The legs have floral and butterfly decoration and the cushion frieze is heavily carved. There is a central corbel on the lintel supporting the shelf which is adorned with a very interesting and deep-profile Ram's head.

In the photo the surround is with insert NN7

Shelf: 153.5cm wide x 26cm deep
Opening: 89.5cm wide x 96.5m high
Overall height: 133cm high
