The mantelpiece is home to an assortment of objects, that slowly grow in number and variety until a tipping point, a critical mass is reached, and a harsh sweep is performed, only a select few remain. Survival of the most meaningful. All of the objects that get placed on the mantelpiece get placed there in order to remind someone of something. A reminder of a memory, a place, perhaps just an errand to be run, or someone to call. Naturally though the notes and objects from the last categories are always the first victims of any clear-out.
I wanted to catalogue this collection somehow, it is more interesting I think than any other shelf which carefully placed pots or stacks of books, letters magazines because it is curated and composed almost absentmindedly. All kinds of things will make it onto the mantelpiece in passing, as just a convenient place to put something down, but it is the amount of significance that each object is allowed that determines how long it will remain there.
These beautiful mantels pieces are available in various different sizes. If you are unable to find the size you are looking for, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will be able to give you a price for a bespoke size.
