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...

Very large black male fire surround

Ref: 2334


Really grand black marble surround from an 1870's property in Dundee. Its never been painted so still has its original sheen, and it has a lovely edge to the shelf, which is a hefty old weight in itse...

Some tiles...

Early hob grate prior to removal

Ref: 2332


Nice Georgian hob with its top decorative panel which we removed, along with a similar one, from a house up Perthshire way. We've not restored it yet, or dipped the pine surround, but it should be a c...

Some tiles...

Very grand large fire surround

Ref: 2331


From the centre of Glasgow, this magnificent surround. It was from a large merchants house and is mahogany, so would need to be hand stripped, though I think its possibly nicer white? Lots of f...

Some tiles...

Latest marble fire

Ref: 2330


Just set this one up. From the south side of Glasgow and a building dating to the 1870's. Nice with the square blocks at the top of each leg as opposed to the usual moulding. A bit of a stain at one e...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert

Ref: 2325


From Trinity in Edinburgh, rather a nice tiled insert still with its original tiles and so on. 16 inch opening....

Some tiles...

Very heavy, grand insert

Ref: 2324


From an early Victorian house, a lovely but very heavy insert with decorative cast side panels and an 18 inch opening...

Some tiles...

Tiny but lovely insert

Ref: 2323


From a Georgian house where we were able to see the smashed remains of most of the fireplaces in the scrap pile (except the marble one which was smashed in the skip) Fume fume fume. One small s...

Some tiles...

Auchterarder combination fire

Ref: 2321


We bought 2 of these from a farm up by Gleneagles a few weeks ago. This one is now sold but we have its matching one, albeit without its back waiting to be cleaned up. Sizes to follow. T...

Some tiles...

Highly polished mahogany surround

Ref: 2318


From Kilmacolm and a house dating to the late Victorian period, a lovely surround which has unfortunately had large bits cut out of the feet in order to fit a concrete fender. We're not too keen to r...

Some tiles...

Grand red marble fire

Ref: 2314


We bought this from a farm in Perthshire where I think it had only been installed for 10 years or so, which often makes them murder to remove as the cements are much stronger. Its an old fireplace, Vi...

Some tiles...

Large mirrored pine fire surround

Ref: 2309


Impressive pine surround with its original mirror (which has a bit of foxing which just makes it look original to me). Great chunky corbels under the shelf and really nice and clean-thanks to a combin...

Some tiles...

White marble fire surround

Ref: 2308


From an 1870's flat, this was actually in a bedroom, though the opening size is fairly large. Its a typical Victorian style and we're selling it a little bit cheaper than normal as it has a bit of dis...

Some tiles...

Black marble fire surround

Ref: 2307


Nice black marble surround from the south side of Edinburgh dating to the late 1870's. Slightly more unusual in having the inner trim. worryingly, no tools were required to remove it as it pretty much...

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround with arched insert

Ref: 2280


Lovely arched insert with an 19 inch opening (unusually big) that we've had extended to be 42 inches sq, really nice crisp pattern on it. The surround came from an 1860's house over in Dunoon which w...

Some tiles...

Carnoustie fire surround

Ref: 2279


One of several fire surrounds we bought from a demolition in Carnoustie a while back, all ever so slightly different, and all surprisingly hard to remove. The one shown was the unlucky first one to be...

Some tiles...

enamel stove

Ref: 2273


Really not sure how old this is, we hardly ever come across them. It has an aluminium badge on the reverse with various details on it so I assume its fairly new. Anyway, lovely looking stove with a to...

Some tiles...

Early hob fire with stone and pine surround

Ref: 2264


Well its taken an aeon to finish restoring this one, but at long last, victory. This is the fire you can see earlier on the web site as gas ref 1811, shown in situ, recently exposed but still partiall...

Some tiles...

Bellows

Ref: 2259


The first bellows we've ever had I think, and they look pretty old. So old in fact, they could do with having the leather re done but I think it must be quite unusual to see such old examples a...

Some tiles...

Fruity combination

Ref: 2258


We've had this pattern a few times over the years, and its always proved to be popular. This is the one with a 16 inch opening, (you also get much smaller bedroom ones) and its covered with patterns a...

Some tiles...

Lovely marble fire surround

Ref: 2229


Nicer than average, and also larger than most, this lovely surround came from a large house in Prestwick dating to the 1880's. Having the angled inner trim makes it a more delicate looking thing and i...

Some tiles...

Small pine surround with arched insert

Ref: 2228


About as small as you will get while still having the standard chunky legs. ( you do see skinnier surrounds but the legs are little more than strips of mouldings). It actually came from Dumfries, alon...

Some tiles...

Large early Victorian arched insert

Ref: 2226


Good early half round insert that we've had extended. This basically means that we've fitted a new flat plate to the front of the insert, cut around the detailing so that the overall sizes are bigger,...

Some tiles...

Broon tiled combination fire

Ref: 2196


This fire has been my nemesis for a while now, and will be for a bit longer I fear. Its a great piece, dating to about 1910 but in order to get it sandblasted (it was thick with paint) I took all the ...

Some tiles...

Pine surround with Georgian square insert

Ref: 2193


Good simple pine surround from the 1880's (though its a style that can be seen anywhere from the 1800's until about the start of the first war). Quite a large opening and shown with an insert dating t...

Some tiles...

Celtic combination

Ref: 2189


Always a popular style, and we've had a few over the years, generally from houses dating to 1900-1910. This one has its original back, flap, grate etc and is just ready to go.12 inch opening....
