over the past 30 years chesney's has acquired a worldwide reputation as the premier resource for the finest antique mantelpieces and for its unrivalled collection of historically authentic facsimile mantelpieces.
Restoring an 18th century mantelpiece requires an extraordinary level of skill and patience and there can be no compromise in the process. This rigorous approach to conservation and unique understanding of the antique mantelpiece in all its forms has inspired and guided the development of our range of facsimile mantelpieces.
Our highly skilled and experienced craftsmen employ the full range of skills and techniques that were used in the production of 18th and 19th century mantelpieces, using materials that are as close as possible to the original. These artisanal skills are married with those of the draftsman and architectural historian in the creation of a collection of museum quality mantelpieces.
