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.

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 ...

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...

Bedroom combination fire with overmantel

Georgian Gesso surround

Ref: 2899

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...

Latest talked insert

Ref: 2867

Slender pine surround

Ref: 2808

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...

Some tiles...

Bedroom combination fire

Ref: 2793


Pretty little fire which we see quite regularly here, though we never used to see them in Edinburgh. They seem to come from Houses dating to 1905-20 ish Tall and thin which lends itself nicely ...

Companion sets

Ref: 2780

Some tiles...

Fairly large black marble fire surround

Ref: 2768


Decent sized marble fire shown here just before we removed it from a house in Lenzie. A touch more detail than some we see with its extra inner trim and mini capitols. The surface has dulled a bit ove...

Tiled insert and pine surround

Grand tiled insert and surround

Some tiles...

Tiny tiny fireplace

Ref: 2748


The smallest fireplace we've ever had, and we bought it from another fireplace dealer who said it was the smallest fireplace he'd ever had too. Goodness knows what sort of surround would have fitted i...

Some tiles...

Ached insert

Ref: 2746


One of the fancier patterned inserts we see, this one with a 17 inch opening which is quite large. It dates to around 1870 and this one came from Dundee. I'm not great at updating the site when items ...

Georgian hob

Pine surround and arched insert

Ref: 2705

Some tiles...

Very large black marble fire surround

Ref: 2704


Rather unusual this one, its the sort of style you see in very grand hallways, where indeed this one came from (in Dundee). Its very grand and very black and would look terrific with a wood burner or ...
