Gothic, Jacobean & Renaissance Fireplaces

Showing 1–36 of 38 results

Thornhill Galleries holds a complement of antique and reproduction fire surrounds from the Gothic, Jacobean and Renaissance design eras. The mantles born from these design periods are perfectly representative of society’s change in taste and style. While fireplaces of the Gothic years were grand, vaulted affairs filled with heraldic and ecclesiastical styling, Jacobean and Italian Renaissance chimneypieces took a more classical design approach. Furthermore, while Gothic and Jacobean mantles traditionally used a combination of limestone and wood to give a sense of imposing grandeur, Renaissance fireplaces introduced marble, stone and plaster, which showcased workmanship rather than scale. For more information on any of our antique fireplaces, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
