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.

Slate fire surround with marbleised finish

Ref: 2794


We see lots of slate fire surrounds and back in Victorian times they would always have had a lacquer on them to make them look, well, posher. This would be in the form of a black gloss or coloured mar...

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...

Large pine surround

Ref: 2792


Very nice pine surround in really good condition from the 1880's shown with a large arched insert which we haven't had extended as it is already 42 inches sq, with an 18 in opening....

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...

Decorative pine surround with large tiled insert

Ref: 2761


Large pine surround shown after we've stripped it but before its been sealed and waxed which came from a late Victorian house in Dumbarton, shown with a pretty tiled insert from Ardrossan (or was it S...

Some tiles...

Very fancy combination fire

Ref: 2759


Well you couldn't fit much more decoration onto this one, birds, Grecian type heads, foliage and all sorts of ribbing etc, a truly impressive piece, more a work of art than a fireplace. and probably f...

Some tiles...

White marble fire surround

Ref: 2753


Well, officially not pure white but white with grey veining. Nice condition fire from the south side of Edinburgh dating to the 1880's.The sizes below are for the outside measurements of the surround ...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert and pine surround

Ref: 2751


Great typical late Victorian set up here, a nice tiled insert with original (as always) art nouveau tiles and a pine surround with a double shelf from just outside Edinburgh. All lovely and clean and ...

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...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert in teak (?) surround

Ref: 2747


Slightly unusual tiled insert in that it doesn't have 2 panels of 6 inch tiles either side of the fire, but a mosaic of little tiles. Nice brass finials too. It came from a tenement in the Brun...

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 ...

Some tiles...

Early horseshoe insert with pine surround

Ref: 2744


Quite early insert this, where they swoop in at the bottom, shown with a nice pine surround with an attractive edged shelf. The insert is relatively small, being 33 inches wide by 34 1/2 tall, but it ...

Some tiles...

Georgian hob

Ref: 2732


Just a quick pic to show a Georgian hob waiting to be restored, as anyone who has been down to our yard will realise, we have a lot of fires waiting to be restored (as of the last stock take, over 400...

Some tiles...

Pine surround and tiled insert

Ref: 2721


Nice pine surround which was one of a number we bought from an old hospital site in Arbroath a few years ago. They were made in 2 parts, so we've had to put a temporary brace joining the top to the

Some tiles...

Georgian timber surround

Ref: 2720


Bit of a curious one this, I'm pretty sure this is a genuine Georgian fire but I just can't be certain, maybe its a slightly later copy? I ought to know as its now almost 30 years since I started doin...

Some tiles...

Bedroom combination fire

Ref: 2709


Nice little bedroom fireplace from around about 1900 with a 12 inch opening....

Some tiles...

Pine surround and arched insert

Ref: 2705


A typical and attractive pine surround with a rather decorative arched insert, the sort of thing that we generally always have in stock (though not always quite restored yet) We try to always have a g...

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 ...

Some tiles...

Slimmer tiled combination fireplace

Ref: 2694


One of 2 matching fires we recently bought in Edinburgh from a flat dating to the 1880's. 14 1/2 inch opening. This one has now been sold but its matching partner is about to get restore...

Some tiles...

Small gothic insert

Ref: 2680


Rather an unusual little insert this one, in that it has a peaked top to the arch as opposed to a smooth curve, and I think its really rather old, it certainly came from a very old building down near ...

Some tiles...

Small ish able surround

Ref: 2673


Quite small (though it was in a large room) fire surround that looks almost Georgian style wise, with the long facia with corbels below it rather than below the actual shelf. The house it came from wa...

Pine surround and tiled insert

Ref: 2672


Nice simple pine surround of the sort that can be found in houses and flats from the beginning to the end of the C19th, The inside legs of the surround are deeper than the outside legs on this one, wh...
