An Italianate fireplace originally housed in a Bronx home in the 1930s, and later moved to Eureka, KS. Finely carved wooden classical decoration, marbled surround and hearth, with a gold painted finish added circa late 1950s.

Included with the fireplace are the original fire screen and andirons from the same home, as well as decorative cast iron fire logs disguising two light sockets.

The fireplace measures 51 1/4" x 62 1/4" x 23", with a 30" x 32" firebox opening. The fire screen measures 31 1/2" x 35".


There are areas of flaking and wear to the gold paint, including a well worn area at the right of the mantel top. The firebox is loose from the fireplace, but not damaged in any notable way. The andirons are missing their finials. The back edge of each side of the fireplace are slightly irregularly shaped to fit around previous wall trim. The lighted fire logs are not wired.
