The Providence fireplace mantel is hand-carved from premium selected hard maple. Our Fireplace mantels come unfinished, finely sanded, and ready to accept any stain to match your surrounding woodwork.
Maple is a creamy-white hardwood with a reddish tinge, sometimes with a dark brown heart. The texture is even, fine and lustrous. It is usually straight grained but often curly or wavy, with fine brown lines marking the growth rings on plain-sawn surfaces. Maple is favored for its acceptance of stain. This allows you to match the final finish to your existing room decor.
The design of the Providence fireplace mantel features stately half-columns with base-blocks on each side of the mantel. The columns have a complex design with deep fluting and running coin trim. The upper blocks are embellished with round rosettes acting as additional support for mantel shelves carved with egg-and-dart design. The central frieze panel has a beautiful leaf carving with shell center.
