We can make a mantel of any design, be it a reproduction of a valuable antique or in the most contemporary style.

Our customized department can produce a mantel in any material, working from photographs, magazine cuttings, sketches or drawings. The successful production of a customized fire surround relies on a wealth of specialist skills; designer, draftsman, clay modeller, architectural historian and finally, mason and carver. Our long established and experienced customized department harnesses all of these skills. The range of projects that we undertake is hugely varied and we are finding that an increasing number of clients, both private and commercial, want to commission individual pieces.


Our Customized Gallery contains a selection of mantelpieces carved by Chesney’s to order for clients. These commissions have ranged from the architecturally simple to the extravagantly carved and from the monumental to those of modest domestic scale. A wide variety of materials and masonry and carving techniques have been used to craft an extraordinarily rich and comprehensive portfolio of mantelpieces
