Replica 1840s ‘Midland’ range

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Panels_Widgets_Image”][/siteorigin_widget]

I was recently asked to find a specific example of a ‘Midlands’ range. After much searching we sadly could not find something the correct size for the gentlemans chimney recess. We decided then to make one! Here is a picture from the early stages of the project showing a scale drawing of what we plan to acheive. The sham plates and bars placed around are originals for reference. Next stage is to cut the sham plates from 1/2″ ply to start work on the patterns. The range will eventually measure 43″ across and will comprise of original oven and boiler.
We suspect it will be the first range of its type to be cast since around 1850!
