Re-watching Fury and I noticed the green tiled thingie there in the room. I see similar things in many films from Europe, especially in older, period buildings. Is this a heater or a wood-burning stove? They are always tiled. Is there a reason for that? And I think they're always only almost to the ceiling (could be wrong on that part). This one has like a little mantle shelf and looks very decorative. Mostly when I see them they are just a solid column that's tiled.
