Detail

While most of the pictures below show our fires fully restored, these are only the tip of the iceberg - we have loads awaiting restoration and can dig these out if you are looking for something specific. We have numbers of people who can install them and arrange to get ashpan covers made to fit any fire.

All these fires can be converted to gas, though with some it is a lot easier (a 16" or 18" opening with no fire back is easiest).

Tiles can often be swapped about and we can, if necessary, weld additional metal plates to the faces of the inserts to make them larger.

If a fire here is labelled as 'sold' do still get in touch as we may have other similar ones waiting to be restored.

Some tiles...

Georgian bedroom insert

Ref: 3123


Very pretty and complete Georgian insert from the New Town in Edinburgh. It came from a bedroom and still has its original backs it would be easy to either use straight away or place in a cavity in a ...

Some tiles...

Unusual brown ish coloured marble fire surround

Ref: 3120


Rather a nice fire surround from the 1890's which I hand stripped during the lockdown in my garden. Its a most unusual colour, mainly a fairly warm brown but with streaks of crimson running through it...

Some tiles...

Very large oak fireplace with insert

Ref: 3065


Really large oak fire surround which came from an 1890's property in Central Glasgow that was originally a manse. Shown with a very large square insert which is much earlier, not that this matters, pr...

Some tiles...

Mahogany surround and tiled insert

Ref: 3059


This surround came from a little cottage near Montrose and seemed a bit grand for its location, being quite ornate and of course, mahogany, though its fairly old as evidenced by having a patch where t...

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround with arched insert

Ref: 3054


Typical Victorian fire surround (also late Georgian really) in yellow pine shown with a good arched insert that we've had extended to be 41 inches sq which has an 18 inch aperture which is quite large...

Some tiles...

Green tiled combination

Ref: 3053


Finally finished restoring this lovely fire from the South side of the city. It needed a bit of blacksmith work, and then shot blasting as it was so heavily painted, which means the tiled panels have ...

Some tiles...

Georgian hob grate with pine surround

Ref: 3014


Lovely early hob grate that came from a farmhouse in Fife a while ago. Its especially nice in that it has its original top section which really finishes it off. It measures 35 inches wide by 36 high a...

Some tiles...

Marble surround and insert

Ref: 3013


Just finished stripping the paint off this marble fire and it seems nice and clean. It came from a tenement up in Woodlands and is shown with an insert dating to the 1860's that has been extended to b...

Some tiles...

Extended arched insert

Ref: 2961


Quite an early arched insert, probably late Georgian, but they used to use the same moulds for years and years so it would suit most houses. Its got an 18 inch opening which is bigger than normal and ...

Some tiles...

Arched insert with back

Ref: 2960


Bigger than it looks, probably because it has an 18 inch opening which is pretty large. This came from a grand house in Lenzie a while ago and has given our blacksmith a right headache sorting out a g...

Some tiles...

Bedroom combination fireplace

Ref: 2958


The whole lockdown thing has meant that we have finally finished restoring a few of our long term resident fires, like this one, which I seem to remember came from an old railway mans house down Kilma...

Some tiles...

Large square insert

Ref: 2957


Big old fella this one, and of a very early design, Georgian. Originally the fire stopped at the rounded beading but this makes them really hard to sell as its nigh on impossible to find a surround ex...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert

Ref: 2934


Another fine tiled insert we've recently finished. This one came from just round the corner in Jordanhill, though we had to replace the more modern tiles with one of the few spare sets we have squirre...

Some tiles...

Hob type fireplace

Ref: 2931


This may be a genuine Georgian hob fire, or it may be a later Victorian one, either way, its a most unusual and pretty thing, if a trifle heavy. The ribbed side cheeks are also brass but we haven't po...

Some tiles...

Slate fireplace

Ref: 2930


Here's our latest slate fireplace all set up and ready to be re homed, if only we were open to let people see it, well I guess it will still be there in a couple of months when we re-open. It came fro...

Some tiles...

Large Edwardian surround with overmantel

Ref: 2911


I would guess this is from the 1920's and its quite an imposing piece, without being too domineering, I guess thats the influence of the mirror adding some light. Its Mahogany and a cut above some of ...

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround and insert

Ref: 2908


Good clean pine surround of a type seen across the land from 1800 to 1900 (this one came from a flat in the west end of Edinburgh dating to the 1860's which had marble fires in the principal rooms and...

Some tiles...

Typical arched insert

Ref: 2906


We have dozens and dozens of arched inserts patiently waiting to be restored, but it all takes time, sourcing missing bits, doing smith work, shot blasting and black leading, but this is a typical one...

Some tiles...

Bedroom combination fire with overmantel

Ref: 2905


From an 1880's tenement in Edinburgh, a nice (and fairly flat) combination fire with its original overmantel-no mirror, just an extra shelf on which you can heap more stuff.14 inch opening....

Some tiles...

Heavy bedroom combination fireplace

Ref: 2904


Heavily embossed, and generally just heavy combination fire which we removed from a church in Edinburgh a few weeks ago. It has a slightly curved shelf and chunky brick back. 14 inch opening and love...

Some tiles...

Georgian Gesso surround

Ref: 2899


Lovely Gesso fire surround shown here with a Georgian grate from the old Lochwinnoch castle-so I'm told.These gesso fires are a nightmare to strip and if heavily painted can cost a 4 figure sum to get...

Some tiles...

Fern pattern combination fireplace

Ref: 2898


One of the prettiest styles we see, and with a larger than normal opening (18 inches). This fire is just back from a years sojourn in Prague where it has been used on a film set. For any nerds out the...

Some tiles...

Latest talked insert

Ref: 2867


I've always liked the look of pink tiles in a black insert, like this. Good simple casting with rather unusual bars on the front. 16 inch opening. Having looked at the pic, it looks a bi...

Some tiles...

Skinny combination fire

Ref: 2810


We recently removed 4 of these unusual little fires from a job we're doing up in Montrose. these are having to be removed in pitch darkness from a second floor flat and then carried down stone steps, ...

Some tiles...

Marble fire surround

Ref: 2807


We bought this, like so many others, coated in paint and have recently finished stripping it and its OK. Its not the cleanest one we've ever had but its fine and is a little cheaper than normal.There...
