Oak Portico Fireplace
The Fireplace was made using Local English Oak, This was commissioned to replace the original which was stolen from the client's home. The period surround was an early square topped Oak over-mantle which was not in keeping with the house or the room in which it stood.The old surround was always in conflict with a large r.s.j sited above it. S A Spooner offered this design to deal with both the room architecture and to help soften the odd beam above it, pleasing both the clients and the insurance company.
Delivered to site with a seal coat of polish and then colour matched to the existing panelling.
Mahogany Carved Surround
