17th Century A Size. (Burgundian Limestone)


A warm beige Burgundian limestone from a small family quarry in France is used to carve the "A" size 17th-century French fireplace. With strong bolection detailing, a generous mantle shelf and a fireplace opening of 1194 mm wide by 1014 mm high makes this fireplace ideally suited for the more substantial open fireplaces or to surround openings in which the bigger wood burners are set. The fireplace surround comes with a matching limestone outer hearth, as shown, which measures 1606mm long by 600 mm wide and by 50 mm thick. (Please just tick the "hearth needed " box.)  Different sized outer hearths, inner hearths and wall cladding can all be supplied in matching stone, honed black slate or polished black granite and quoted for if required. Matching slips can also be provided to reduce the opening dimensions if needed.

This fire surround is prepared for fitting before it leaves our workshops and will have all the fixing holes pre-drilled so it is easier to assemble on site.  

A fireplace fitting pack including spacers, pins, glues, and instructions also comes with the fireplace

Alternatively, we will be happy to quote for the fireplace installation if you supply us with the site information needed.

A warm Burgundian limestone, from a small specialist quarry near Dijon in France, is used to make the 17th Century reproduction French stone fireplace. This stone has really attractive and subtle movement in shades of beige as well as numerous small natural imperfections in it. These all combine to create the impression that the fire surround has been around for ever. This gives the fireplace so much character and complements the simple, bold curves of the 17th century bolection moulding detailing ensuring that this design is one of our most popular. It features regularly in both contemporary and traditional interiors, working equally with an open fires and wood burning stoves. If you're looking for a reproduction French fireplace which really looks great everywhere this, or its sister, the slightly smaller "B size" version is the one.
