Custom Firebacks

Pennsylvania Fireback artist J. Del Conner can create a custom designed and sculpted fireback pattern for limited edition castings. Send a sketch or other reference material for your design idea to Pennsylvania Firebacks for a free estimate. If you approve the project, a full sized layout of the design will be submitted for approval before pattern is produced.

The largest size, the foundry (where Pennsylvania Firebacks have been made for 43 years), will make, is 28” by 28.”

We have three sizes, for custom artwork requests (16 weeks is needed for casting).

Information about those firebacks are below in red-small size, green-medium size, blue-large size.

The foundry always cast in multiples of two. You must order at least two firebacks. Most of the time both castings are good, if only one of the castings is good, only one is paid for.

The price for the custom art, medium amount of detail, would be approximately $2000, plus the cost of two castings, which ever size you choose.

The price for the custom art, small amount of detail (less realistic, more graphic), would be approximately $1000, plus the cost of two castings, which ever size you choose.

The price for the custom art, a great amount of detail, would be approximately $3000, plus the cost of two castings, which ever size you choose. ________________________________________________________________________________

We have a small SF06 Plain Panel, size is 19 ”w x 21 1/2” h, for custom work.

Castings are usually $580 a piece, two castings would be $1160, price includes shipping.

Spring Fireback ________________________________________________________________________________

We have a new SF23 Classic Plain Panel, size is 24.5” w x 21” h, for custom work.

Castings are usually $650 a piece, two castings would be $1300, prices includes shipping.

Spring Fireback ________________________________________________________________________________

We also have a large LF02 Large Plain Panel, 27 3/4” w x 24 1/4” h, for custom work.

Castings are usually $900 a piece, two castings would be $1800, prices includes shipping.

Spring Fireback ________________________________________________________________________________

The cost above, is for the actual castings of the custom artwork. We require half of the cost up front, to start the job, covering our costs. If an entirely new fireback is requested, the cost would increase dramatically, as we would have to build a completely new frame for the original art and a new casting board would need to be built for the casting, at the foundry.
