Quick update

Today I was at Cliftoria mowing the lawn while waiting for a trades person to maybe turn up. Alas they didn’t make an appearance but have promised to be there tomorrow morning.

I took a picture of the mantlepiece that was gifted to us. As we have so many fireplaces without mantles we will indeed use this one. I like the style of it with its curves. I’m no expert but I suspect it may be somewhat Art Nouveau or at least more modern than the Victorian era. A quick scan of Victorian mantlepieces show a more boxy style with architectural features like columns. It was very nice indeed for the neighbour to give it to us.

  1. Thanks. I knew it was one of the Art styles from early last century. Very modern compared to Victorian but will be used in a room for sure. The white paint does seem too thick and not quite right.
