Morris & Co. Cinderella Story Tiles

Cinderella Fireplace Overmantel Tile Panels

There are five existing sets of original Cinderella fireplace panels:

  • Four of the existing Cinderella fireplace sets are six panel sets for the Cinderella Fireplace tiles, with each panel consisting of two square tiles each. The tile sizes vary. Some are less than 5 inches, some more than six.

  • One other set consists of seven panels (14 tiles), with the marriage scene panel from Sleeping Beauty being included as the final panel.

Side Panels

In addition, the original fireplace at 'The Hill' had two side panels, as shown in the black and white photo of 'The Hill' fireplaces below. Variations of these side panels were installed in a small hallway fireplace at Cronkbourne (also called Tromode) on the Isle of Man, known only for its Beauty and the Beast Tile installation. I've recently added the Cinderella side panels, based on the Cronkbourne hallway fireplace.

Cinderella Story Tiles

These are the six Cinderella-only panels. The seventh panel which also appears in the Sleeping Beauty set can be added to this set and it would still be an authentic reproduction set.

Cinderella Fireplace Side Panels

In addition to the 12 overmantel tiles, the fireplace at 'The Hill' had two flanking side panels:

Interestingly, the same side panels were installed in a small hallway fireplace at Cronkbourne (Tromode) and this fireplace is still intact. I have based my side panels on the version installed at Cronkbourne. They are available in 6-inch or 8-inch tiles.
