We found this fireplace unassembled in the 'do not enter' corner of an antique shop ten years ago. The owner said it had come out of an old house in Point Clare, New South Wales, Australia. The iron sections are stamped Carron (of Edinburgh) and the three huge tiles with mitred corners are marked Minton on the reverse.
We haven't seen any other fireplace tiles of this type or design in ten years of looking - does anyone have more infomation on them? Were they too tricky to manufacture and install?
