Chelsea Fireplace Front in Polish with 16″ Inset Panel in Black. (Showroom Display)
As the Georgian era developed, increasing numbers of the more wealthy landowners started to build or lease ‘town houses’ in London. The fireplace in these homes still retained its place as the focus of the room but was, of necessity, generally smaller than the grand, open chimneys incorporated into the ‘ancestral seat’. Initially, the brick opening of the town house fireplace would contain an elaborate fire basket. Progressively, however, the addition of a cast front which could decrease, hide or improve the look of the opening became a typical feature.
