Antique Victorian Marbelised Slate Fireplace with Corbels


An original Victorian fireplace with well-carved corbels, the piece has been made from black slate and offers an impressive surround with ornate gold decoration to the lintel and jambs.

The black slate has been expertly painted to give a marbelised effect; a technique frequently seen throughout the Victorian period. This particular surround has green panels to emulate Verdi Marble.

The use of black slate is typical of the period as the black was used as a mark of respect to mourn the death of Queen Victoria.

The piece has been gently restored in-house and its current condition can be seen in the photographs.
