Tiled combination fire
Looks great this does, dating to about 1895 and from a local school-one of the teachers rooms. Lovely crackly tiles (which can be changed if necessary) and a theme of 'plenty' on the facia-fruit on on...
Large square insert
While some fires languish in our back room for years awaiting their turn to be restored, some impertinent fires jump the queue as this young fella has. Only a couple of weeks ago it was hiding ...
The most beautiful hob grate
Just in and not restored yet, but it's just so lovely I couldn't help but put it on the website. Just flaunting it really, though it will be for sale later. From an amazing house up north. The ...
Simple but large mirror
Ideal for a dressing room or something, and difficult to take a pic of in such a cluttered warehouse, but this dates to the 1930's, has a nice bevelled edge, a solid wooden back and when we bought it ...
Folding iron gate
Such a nice thing, and a work of art really. This gate folds away to be less than 10 inches wide and yet folds out, oh so easily, to be 59 inches wide (5ft) and at 67 tall its a fair old size. Lots of...
Tall oak surround
Good turn of the century oak surround now stripped of its dark varnish. At some point someone had cut the feet off it, but kept them, so we've re-attached them, but this will always be a weak point wh...
Wire mesh or trellis
We have several of these, some rectangular and some with a peaked top that were used as protective covers for some church windows. They are nice old examples of the sort of Galvanised wire mesh that u...
Enormous Belfast sink
At 4 feet long, this is a seriously large sink. Its 24 inches wide and in really pretty good condition. Wash your children in it? you could fit triplets in this one....
Massive ceramic drainer
Truly the biggest ceramic drainer we've ever had. 51 inches long by 23 wide....
Such a sweet little thing, from an old hospital and with great push button taps. Its got its brackets too, but they're not in the pic. 15.5 inches across...
Pitch pine spindles with handrails
We have several lengths of this lovely ballustrading from a job in central Glasgow. The amount of work thats gone into making it would have been enormous and it feels really good to be able to save it...
Art nouveau cast iron double gates
Rare rare rare. Original cast iron gates from the foundry with their original posts. Lovely art nouveau design and they look to be in perfect condition, no cracks or pieces missing, and thats unusual....
Me and my middle son had to dig these out from a house about to be pulled down a couple of weeks ago. Never seen ones like them before, a square one (at 6 1/4 inches) and then a fancier one ( at 4 1/2...
Pair of green painted school cupboards
These don't need to be sold as a pair but if they are to be split up then we will need to do a bit of remedial work to the cornice, but we can do that. They came from a school in Leith and look...
Maybe not the oldest thing in the world, from the '50's? but a right sturdy long bench/sideboard/beginnings of a kitchen with a really thick top on it. I think you could chop up dead animals for years...
Wooden surround with tiled insert
There's something about these two that I really like. Very attractive surround which I think should remain painted (not sure if it would strip that well), I like the way there are the extra little blo...
Shown prior to us cleaning it up, quite a nice tiled insert we got from a flat off the Great western rd. Officially its a bedroom fire as it only has a 14 inch opening, but its all complete and would ...
Alas already sold, but well worth putting a pic up, for folk to see. I think they're off to an industrial themed night club in Edinburgh....
Despite its (treated) wormy central spar, this is still a good tough old trolley made by the one and only 'Slingsby'. It has M.O.W stamped on the sides which I assume is for the Ministry of work?...
Vintage metal cabinets
From a factory in Edinburgh, nice couple of old cabinets (30 inches wide by 18 deep and 6 feet tall ). One looks a little older than the other and has a nicer handle and more prominent butt hinges (th...
In deed, verily tis good fortune to come across this piece of glass during the anniversary of the good mans birth (or is it his death?). It originated in a bank in Newcastle and looks as if it ...
Ah, a sad tale. This is the old base of the mixing mechanism from the company that used to make all the shellac we use. The place has only been going for a hundred years or so, and now its to be demol...
Terrific Georgian pine and gesso fire surround
One of 4 original pine and gesso surrounds we recently bought which were in storage from an old development on Queen street in Edinburgh's new town, we also bought some of the mangled remains of the b...
Georgian pine and gesso surround
The 3rd out of 4 original pine and gesso surrounds that we recently bought from a storage unit where they've lain for many years having originally come from Queen St in Edinburghs new town (apparently...
