Gothic Fireplace Cast Iron Combination
The Gothic fireplace dating from around 1865 features an impressive bold arch with highlight details. Cast iron fires with Gothic designs were typical of the early Victorian period. The Gothic is influenced by designer William Morris whose designs were beautifully ornate. The dimensions suggest that the Gothic fire is ideally suited for use in a parlour or drawing room.
The Gothic fireplace is produced by Carron.
The Gothic fire can be used for traditional solid fuels. This 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.

What is a ‘Combination’ fireplace?
A ‘Combination’ is a complete fireplace where the surround (mantel) and insert have been cast as one piece. Fireback, grate and shelf components 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 generally more suitable for bedrooms. The main body and surround (mantel) on larger fireplaces are cast as individual sections.
