Mid Victorian fireplace inserts tend to have narrower arched fire openings with more geometric than floral decoration.

Fireplace inserts have to be slightly larger than the opening of the surrounding mantel.

The Regal is an option for houses with narrower chimney breasts since it has a nominal 14 inch fire opening.

The arch is decorated with a Celtic cross motif as it tapers to the opening, an outer plain rib surrounds this and the bars are "bearded" ( the bottom bar has a rough edge due to continuing decoration below the main body - like a pelmet for curtains but at the bottom!!)
