Chesneys Northumberland Fireplace

The Chesneys Northumberland Fireplace is an 18th century neo-classical chimney-piece which shows the influence of Robert Adam. It has fluted Ionic columns supporting an entablature decorated with classical urns and ewers with inset marble panels in contrasting colours to the statuary marble.

Steeped in culture and charm, Georgian fireplaces are a reminder of the class, elegance and romance of this seminal period of British history. From the stately homes and landed gentry of Jane Austen’s seminal works, to the romantic poetry of Lord Byron, these antique fire surround designs are distinguished by their exquisite symmetry and proportion. The silhouettes of these chimney-pieces take inspiration from the finest examples of the neoclassical period, and from Ancient Greek and Roman architecture.
