Westland London...
Extraordinary Antique Mantels!

Westland London is one of the world's premier sources of antique fireplace mantels and chimneypieces.   Housed in a former church in the center of London,  its constantly changing inventory  --  which is continually being replaced by ever more interesting and attractive period pieces -- includes fascinating examples of all styles and eras!

  chimneypiece with overmantel, ca. 1880


Its ever evolving collection is comprised of antique mantels and  overman-
tels made from a variety of materials including stone, such as shown in the remarkable example pictured below. The stone Gothic Revival arched chim-
neypiece has high relief carved detail in the manner of A.W.N.Pugin (1812-
1852) and comes with the original handsome brass clock -- in working or-
der -- in the overarch!

Not to be outdone by the stone surround pictured above,  the  very  large and dramatically carved 19th century chimneypiece that follows is made of oak in the 17th century Venetian Renaissance manner.  This stunning mas-
sive structure -- which came from the 16th century Irish home of  Sir Wal-
ter Raleigh -- includes a base and surround of beautiful white-veined Rouge de Rance red marble.

Following is a sampling of the range of styles and periods in wood  mantels available from Westland London. Below, left, is a richly decorated late 19th century or Victorian-era surround made of rosewood -- a  beautiful tropical hardwood profusely inlaid with a variety of other  exotic  woods  with  neo- classical panels and motifs.

Pictured  below,  right,  is a somewhat simpler -- albeit equally beautiful -- 1930s English Art Deco chimneypiece.     It is inlaid with a variety of woods including walnut, rosewood, satinwood, yew, elm and yellow pine.

In lieu of beautifully contrasting inlays of exotic woods, the following exam-
ples are ornamented with elaborate carvings.    Below,  left,  is a profusely carved walnut chimneypiece in the Renaissance manner.    Primarily carved with floral detail,  this impressive mid-19th century European mantel  is  in-
terspersed with carvings of angels, dragons and birds.

Pictured below,  right,  is a richly carved Neo Renaissance Walnut chimney-
piece from the late 19th century. Italian in origin, it is styled in the manner of Salvatore Valenti,  an Italian sculptor active in Palermo, Sicily from 1835 to 1903.
