Oxford Fireplace Cast Iron Combination
The Oxford fireplace dating from around 1900 features a plain uncluttered ribbed fascia and is finished in traditional black or polished finish. Victorian cast iron fireplaces with strong patterns were typical of the Victorian period, but the Oxford would not be out of place in a 1920s Art Deco setting. The dimensions suggest the Oxford combination is ideally suited for use in a parlour or drawing room.
The Oxford fireplace is produced by Carron.
The fire can be used for traditional solid fuels and will therefore require an ashpan. The Oxford fire can be fitted purely for decoration, but will still require a fire 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 Oxford 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.
