Tiled combination fire

Ref: 2232


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...

Grand Georgian insert

Ref: 2231


One of the grandest fires we've had for a while, and one of the heaviest. From Edinburgh's New Town, it arrived without its back panel which we've replaced. In the pic you can see odd marks on the bac...

Large square insert

Ref: 2227


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

Ref: 2217


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 ...

Very large oak surround

Ref: 2215


Awful pics I'm afraid, not enough room in the warehouse to stand back and take the pic, and it was dark, but it'll do for now. This actually came from a Georgian/early Victorian flat in Edinburghs wes...

Simple but large mirror

Ref: 2212


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 ...

Cast iron roll top bath

Ref: 2211


We've more or less stopped taking cast iron baths in now, they're a bit heavy to get up stairs now middle age approaches and those who have been down to our yard will sympathise that we are pretty sho...

Folding iron gate

Ref: 2208


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

Ref: 2197


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

Ref: 2180


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

Ref: 2168


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

Ref: 2167


Truly the biggest ceramic drainer we've ever had. 51 inches long by 23 wide....

Tiny sink

Ref: 2166


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

Ref: 2162


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

Ref: 2140


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....

Garden edging

Ref: 2138


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

Ref: 2133


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...

workbench

Ref: 2132


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

Ref: 2122


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...

Tiled insert

Ref: 2121


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 ...

metal fans

Ref: 2114


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....

trolley

Ref: 2107


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

Ref: 2103


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...

Shakespeare glass

Ref: 2102


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 ...

tressle/table base

Ref: 2101


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...
