French Fireplace Collection

The French Fireplace displays an unmistakably different architectural form from that of its English counterpart. With its exuberant curves and lavish decoration it is instantly recognizable.

The Navarre

Reflecting the popularity of the French rococo style in the England during the 18th century, the Navarre is an English chimneypiece that copies the French style whilst retaining the taller proportions typical of an English chimneypiece. Carved in white marble, it is shown with forged steel Burton andirons, Morris fire basket for dogs and Reeded cast iron interior panels.

The Fontainbleu

A French style marble chimneypiece of 18th century design having carved rosettes on the corner blocks above console jambs headed by Acanthus leaf carvings and incorporating carved wreath and trailing foliage to the frieze.

The Regence

A beautiful example of a French chimneypiece from the Rococo period: around 1750. It displays the sinuous lines that characterise the movement of Rococo design. Manufactured in white marble, the execution of this chimneypiece with its free form carving is a test of the carver's art.

The Versailles

Sensuous curves and shapely mouldings characterise the Versailles fireplace. Rarely showing a straight line or a sharp corner its exuberant design is a magnificent example of Chesney's carving.

The Fiorenza

A new addition to the Chesney's Stone Collection, the Fiorenza is a copy of a Renaissance stone chimneypiece. It displays delicate carved detail to the pilasters and frieze and a generously proportioned mantel shelf.

The Marseilles

An 18th century Provincial French design of simple form with console jambs, plain frieze and generous mantel shelf. This is a design seen in chateaux and manor houses throughout France. Shown in Bathstone with the Salisbury 8 kw multifuel stove from Chesneys stove collection. On display in our Cowbridge Showroom.
