White Marble Arundel Castle Fire Surround

STOCK REF: 146236219

White Marble Arundel Castle Fire Surround

Here we have this Grand and Beautiful Reclaimed White Marble Arundel Castle Fire Surround available on display in our showroom at Authentic Reclamation.

There are nearly 1,000 years of history at this great castle, situated in magnificent grounds overlooking the River Arun in West Sussex and built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel.

During the Civil War (1642-45), the Castle was badly damaged when it was twice besieged, first by Royalists who took control, then by Cromwell’s Parliamentarian force led by William Waller. Nothing was done to rectify the damage until about 1718 when Thomas, the 8th Duke of Norfolk (1683-1732) carried out some repairs. Charles Howard, the 11th Duke (1746-1815), known to posterity as the ‘Drunken Duke’ and friend of the Prince Regent subsequently carried out further restoration. This was prior to the visit of Queen Victoria 1846

If you look at our photographic collection – the interior of the Castle before the 15th Duke made his alterations.

It appears this design of fireplace surround is the same as what was once in the drawing room (south wing) Removed items and materials were sold in a two-day auction. (Please see images attached) Lot 322 may be said fire surround? Presumably selling for £75, the afternoon Wednesday 15th April 1891! Mr Mostyn was the Steward/Estate Agent at that time.
