Abingdon Fireplace Cast Iron Combination
The Abingdon fireplace originally dates from around 1890.
This late Victorian period cast iron fireplace is unusual due to its lack of decoration. The Abingdon is very understated in style. This is less typical than many over ornate fireplaces of the same period. It is supplied in black or polished finish.
The Abingdon fireplace is supplied by Carron fires.
The fire can be used for traditional solid fuels and will therefore require an ashpan. A gas insert is also available which needs to be fitted by a ‘Gas Safe’ registered installer. The Abingdon fireplace can be fitted purely for decoration, but will still require a fireplace opening large enough to accommodate the fireback.
Polished fireplaces will require occasional maintenance to retain the appearance. This involves a rub of light oil over the surface. Due to the intense heat produced by a real fire, discolouration or tarnishing of polished cast iron may occur. To avoid this, it is recommended that customers choose black or highlighted finish fireplaces.
Due to the size and weight of this product, the fireplace will be delivered on a palletised delivery service. All pallet deliveries are kerbside/front door delivery only, so please arrange adequate means to take your order into your home. Under normal circumstances this may require 2 people.

What is a ‘Combination’ fireplace?
‘Combination fireplaces’ are complete fireplaces where the surround (mantel) and insert have been cast as one piece. Fireback, grate and shelf parts are made separately before being bolted together. The casting process limits the overall size of a combination fire hence they tend to be smaller. They are often more suitable for bedrooms. The main body and surround (mantel) on larger fireplaces are cast as individual sections.
