Morris Fireplace Cast Iron Combination
The tiled Morris fireplace dates from around 1900 and features a strong William Morris design element. The frieze is adorned with an embossed thistle and a reciprocal floral decoration on the hood. Tile runners to the legs can be fitted with any Carron tiles to compliment the design.
The Morris cast iron fireplace’s floral detail acts as the centre point to an elegant Art Nouveau design, which is complimented by intricate floral detailing on a shaped canopy and tile holders within the framing.
The Morris fireplace is produced by Carron.
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 Morris 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?
A combination fireplace is a complete fireplace where the surround (mantel) and insert have been cast as one piece. The fireplace components such as the fireback, grate and shelf, are made separately and simply bolted together. The casting process limits the size of the fireplace so that combination fires tend to be smaller and therefore generally more suitable for bedrooms and smaller rooms. For larger fireplaces, the main body and surround (mantel) are cast as individual sections.
