Marble Mantels for Sale from Many Eras
Mantelpieces originated in medieval times as a simple hood that was placed over a fire grate to catch smoke. The term has since expanded to include the decorative framework around the fireplace. It can include elaborate designs that can extend to the ceiling. Styles include French, Faux, and Victorian marble mantels. Up until the 12th century, fires were simply made in the middle of home with the help of a hypocaust (an ancient precursor to modern central heating) or with small containers filled with hot coals called a brazier. Now history buffs will put fireplaces in the walls, therefore building chimneys into the structure. As a result, we see the design of a very elaborate and rich architectural focal point for a grand room through a marble mantel fireplace.
