Decorative Period Features
The following features can complement and enhance
interior and exterior period mosaics:
- Yorkstone and
- Brass Thresholds (step treads and carpet
- Coalhole covers
Traditionally used for steps and thresholds for its durability,versatility
and elegance. Broken, heavily weathered or worn stone can be replaced
with modern quarried stone.
A variety of brasswork is used to complement tiled areas and prevent
wear on thresholds and doors.
Commonly found beneath steps, this decorative feature provides basement
ventilation. These can be revived if heavily eroded or replaced with
reproductions if broken or missing.
Commonly in castellated or rope-topped styles, these edgings provide
a necessary boundary for the path, helping to retain planted borders,
gravel etc. and ensuring efficient water run-off.
Traditionally used to provide a convenient means of delivering coal,
these can commonly be found still intact in pathways and can be restored
and re-incorporated into new or restored paths.
