Very interesting fireplaces and each one so different.
Tom Wilson: There's another one to come smile
Wonderful, Tom, I cant imagine how people create these things.
Tom Wilson: Great work.
It is very beautiful!
Tom Wilson: It would look rather odd in a modern semi-detached!

The sheer amount of work in this is mind blowing Tom..
Tom Wilson: Fine work, isn't it?

What intricacy. What date, please, Tom?
Tom Wilson: Seventeenth century, I'd think, Lisl, but perhaps early 18th??
That would bring a pretty price at auction, for sure, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Wouldn't it just! All the museums would be after it.

That is just beautiful, Tom. All those details are just amazing. What a dedication of the artist.
Tom Wilson: I guess people could sit and gaze at it and tell the stories behind the scenes.

I wonder how long it took to carve this fireplace surround.
Tom Wilson: I couldn't even begin to guess, Chad, but it certainly wasn't done in a day!
This is a wonderful piece of work Tom. Oak I assume.
Tom Wilson: I'd guess so, Bill.
There's some very fine work there.
Tom Wilson: There is indeed, Brian.

one of the most intricate mantles i've ever seen
Tom Wilson: Quite amazing, isn't it?
It tells a whole story it seems.
