Old English Fireplace Benches

We make our benches the old fashion way: artisan skills, solid iron, hand welded and customized for each client and the intended hearth. Fireplace benches (a.k.a. "club fenders") add design, function and relevance to today's much-less-used fireplaces.   

Original old English fireplace benches (19th - 18th C and earlier) are extremely rare. Even Victorian era club fenders (19th Century) are rare in England. What distinguishes 'old' English benches it firstly wrought iron and hand-welded. These are much heavier and truly custom in size and design. By contrast, contemporary benches from England (since 1920's) are typically quite light, made from hollow metal alloys using nut & bolt assembly, and are quite standardized in design.
