The Mantelpiece

Mantels and Hoods

Everyone enjoys fireplaces; our attraction to them derived in large part from the enjoyment of the warmth that the fire brings.

Through the recent centuries the mantelpiece has functionally been the focal point and most important feature of the gathering room. Perhaps this attention was the impetus to the mantelpiece becoming the most artistic and ornamental structure of the room.

Your mantelpiece from Old World, whether ornate, rustic or modern, a source of warmth and character, will provide you with a wonderful enrichment and beautiful comfort to your home. Visit our GALLERY page to see some of the best of our work and find your inspiration.
