Antique Fireplace Mantels & Accessories

Is there anything quite as welcoming, on a cold day, as a hearth aglow with a warm and cozy fire?  Fireplaces have been inviting many a weary soul to warm their bones and chase the chill away for centuries.  Simple, yet elegant, the fireplace is naturally the focal point of any room.  Why not equip your fireplace with the finest in authentic fireplace mantles and accessories?

The Brass Knob offers a complete inventory of antique fireplace mantles and accessories.  From vintage tools to decorative mantles, antique andirons and fireplace fenders, The Brass Knob Architectural Antiques has just what you need.  We even offer a selection of unique summer covers for an elegant touch when you don’t necessarily need, or want, to set the hearth, but desire a piece that dresses the room.

Antique and Vintage Mantles     

Whether you’re restoring an older home, or adding a touch of vintage to your décor, your hearth is the centerpiece-and attention-getter-of the room.  The warmth which emanates from your fireplace on chilly evenings is as inviting as that which adorns your mantelpiece, where you display cherished family pictures, meaningful knick-knacks and pieces of art which hold a special place in your heart.

A vintage or antique fireplace mantle can add beauty and character to your display, your gathering place, and your focal point.  A dramatic mantle adds its own story to any room and provides unique beauty as it frames your fireplace.  Much like a favorite piece of furniture, which has withstood the test of time, an antique fireplace mantle provides detail, function and charm to your hearth and home.

Available in many styles and architectural design, antique and vintage fireplace mantles from The Brass Knob provide your home with authentic, one-of-a-kind beauty.  Our mantles are sourced and salvaged from historic homes and buildings, and restored with attention to their fine decorative details.   What better way to pay homage to a bygone era than to install a vintage mantle in your home?

Fireplace Accessories

If the mantelpiece is the crowning glory, you need to think of the accessories as adding grace and appeal to your fireplace.  Authentic pieces, such as brass andirons, cast-iron fenders, and hammered tools provide striking detail to your hearth.  At The Brass Knob, we carry a variety of fireplace accessories and tools reflecting many styles of architecture.  Firebacks, grids and inserts dating back to Rococo, Renaissance, Victorian, and Classic American periods are available and adaptable to your needs.  Summer covers are, in themselves, unique pieces of art, and also function as a way to shore up your hearth during those warmer months when the need to build a fire is unlikely.

Decorative Additions

The Brass Knob Architectural Antiques carries a varied selection of pieces to add to your vintage and antique fireplace.  Items such as overmantle antique beveled mirrors and bookcases, decorative sconces, as well as restored and functioning lighting.  We also carry many more ornamental pieces, stained glass and vintage tiles.  Everything you need to restore and adorn your hearth and home is available at The Brass Knob Architectural Antiques.
