English & Irish Wood Fireplaces

Showing 1–36 of 48 results

At Thornhill Galleries, we have a large selection of elegant English and Irish antique wood fireplaces, a variety of high-quality Georgian, Regency and Victorian originals, hand carved in pine, oak, walnut and mahogany. Many English fireplaces feature detailed carvings of foliage and scenes of nature, evocative of the traditional English countryside, while others are simpler in design for a unique, understated finish. As traditionally antique wood mantels were usually painted, an alternative to carved wood was the use of gesso, a composition which gave the detail of really carving at a much cheaper cost than carving.

Reclaimed fireplaces are available in a variety of sizes, enabling you to source something to make the perfect addition to your living space. Beautifully crafted and majestic, a traditional English or Irish wooden fireplace is truly something to be admired. To find out more about any of the carved wood antique mantles in our collection, get in touch with Thornhill Galleries today.
