Antique Fireplace Mantels

The heart of a vintage home is the hearth and fireplace. What surrounds that area is not only a statement of period but an expression of style and refinement at one end of the spectrum and of simple utility at the other. We try to cater to those needs. Mantles were custom built around the firebox, so they were very specific to each opening. To retro-fit a mantle into a restoration or an adaptive re-use scenario is a challenge to which we have risen on numerous occasions.

Take a look at our inventory----we have included pertinent measurements. We also stock period mouldings and vintage lumber to custom build if an original is not readily available.
