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.

Very grand carved wood surround with marble slips and fire b

Ref: 3276


Grandest fire we've had for a while, from a collapsing but once very grand house. We thought at first it was a pine and gesso surround but it appears to be carved wood (except possibly the circular ca...

Some tiles...

white marble fire surround

Ref: 3274


From the south side of Edinburgh and set up just after we took it out, hence it's looking a little grubby still. reasonable size that would suit a smallish living room, it has the odd mark here and th...

Some tiles...

Very decorative bedroom combination

Ref: 3272


Not a pattern I've seen before and if Robert Adam had designed combination fireplaces, they would probably look like this, covered with urns, swags and flute like instruments. Very pretty. 13 1...

Some tiles...

Marble fire surround

Ref: 3264


fairly delicate yet with a decent aperture, this is the sort of fire surround that has come out of a more modest sized living room from anywhere between 1860 and 1900. Couple of small chips to the far...

Some tiles...

Simple marble fire surround

Ref: 3207


Our marble fire surrounds generally have little corbels under the shelf, but this one is as simple as can be, no frills at all. It came from a property built in the 1860's and is shown with an arched ...

Some tiles...

Pine surround with small sq insert

Ref: 3205


Nice simple pine surround of the type found in poor tenements to grand houses and from the 1800's to 1900 shown with a late Georgian square insert which I think suits it nicely. Its a bedroom insert r...

Some tiles...

Very decorative bedroom combination

Ref: 3204


We recently bought 2 van loads of fireplaces from the Borders which included 3 like this one, now fully restored (thought alas one of them requires some serious work). About as pretty a little fire as...

Some tiles...

Georgian hob grate

Ref: 3195


A very nice one this. It came from a very grand house down near Jedburgh and now that its been sand blasted I can safely say that I don't think I've ever seen such fine casting in a piece of iron, it ...

Some tiles...

Carved pine surround with large arched insert

Ref: 3194


Rather a heavily varnished surround we bought from Rutherglen a while ago. Its a type of pine that doesn't strip well, so it would be best to leave it as it is or paint it, dating to around 1900. The ...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

Some tiles...

Companion sets

Ref: 2780


about a year ago I posted a pic of part of a huge collection of companion sets on our Facebook page, about 20 boxes of bits, they'd all been taken to pieces and I stupidly thought my children would en...

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...

Some tiles...

Grand tiled insert and surround

Ref: 2750


Rather a lovely tiled insert this, with a large opening size of 18 inches. It came from a very grand house in Edinburgh dating to the 1860's. We actually sold it a while ago, cleaned it all up and sen...

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...
