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...

Pine surround

Ref: 2590


Been waiting patiently for a while for its chance to be restored this one. From a large council building near Falkirk which was the subject of a rush demolition job, so we had to drop everything to na...

Some tiles...

Tiled fire insert

Ref: 2589


Nice tiled insert with a 16 inch opening which is your standard living room size. The insert can of course be extended to fit a larger aperture by attaching a new steel plate to the front and re blast...

Some tiles...

White marble surround

Ref: 2583


Good sized white marble fire surround no longer painted pink, which if it could speak, it would be truly grateful for. It has a few surface scratches which I've tried to show on one of the clos...

Some tiles...

Amazing art nouveau tiled insert

Ref: 2574


The sort of fire insert we only get once a year or so, and the type that has inspired so many inferior reproductions The pictures really don't do it justice, its just a very very nice insert.

Some tiles...

Georgian insert

Ref: 2573


In very good condition, not burnt out at all which is unusual for something thats a couple of hundred years old. Typical Georgian foliate motifs and balloon back....

Some tiles...

Grand mahogany fire surround

Ref: 2572


Good mahogany surround shown before we've done any cleaning up to it, from a house on Great western rd. For such a large piece, the opening sizes are fairly small. The inner surround comprises 3 piece...

Some tiles...

Cheaper surround

Ref: 2571


Nice grand fire that we'd usually sell for quite a bit, but its a type of wood that doesn't strip well (American walnut?), something we can only find out once we've bought the thing and taken it off t...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert

Ref: 2563


Very attractive tiled insert, and quite an early one, dating to about 1870. We've never seen this pattern of casting before, really very gothic. It came from a flat above a shop in Wishaw....

Some tiles...

Fern pattern combination

Ref: 2559


Very pretty combination fire we bought from a house near Stirling a while ago. It has a 17 3/4 inch opening so would take a decent fire and the thing is made from 2 separate cast halves bolted togethe...

Some tiles...

Huge oak fire surround

Ref: 2557


There is a very poor pic of this earlier on the website, and this one is far from perfect, its so big I can't stand far enough back to take a photo..Some of the mouldings have become a little loose, b...

Some tiles...

Bedroom tied combination

Ref: 2555


This fire has only travelled a couple of miles from us and dates to about 1910-20. We had to have a new metal shelf made for it and blast off a few layers of white paint but thats all that was needed....

Some tiles...

Restored tiny fire

Ref: 2553


This is how the tiny fire ( previous ref 2323 ) has turned out. As good as new, only better....

Some tiles...

A truly lovely and unusual tiled insert

Ref: 2547


We bought this on a recent trip to Inverness and I think its one of the nicest inserts we've ever had, and so unusual.Its large ( sizes to follow ) and as well as the brass, it has these amazing tiles...

Some tiles...

Pine surround with reproduction insert

Ref: 2545


Good simple pine surround which has been varnished by a previous owner, shown with a reproduction insert, not something we generally bother with, but this one had such attractive tiles......

Some tiles...

White tiled insert

Ref: 2544


Every year I pick a lame duck of a fire to be sent off to be repaired. It feels like an annual treat to restore a fire that isn't really economically worth while, but makes me feel good. This fire wa...

Some tiles...

Pine surround with Georgian insert

Ref: 2543


Decent pine surround which we've put with a Georgian insert, though they can of course be sold separately. They both came from Edinburgh, the insert from a flat up Bruntsfield way....

Some tiles...

Red tiled insert

Ref: 2542

Some tiles...

Large white marble fire surround

Ref: 2526


Good big marble fire surround from the centre of Glasgow and dating to the 1870's. A little bit of extra detail in that it has inner legs capped by small mouldings which hold up the facia. It has a co...

Some tiles...

Fireplace for an old fossil

Ref: 2518


Last summer I posted a pic of some great ammonites we found on our holidays down in Dorset, and carrying on with the theme, here's an ammonite-y tiled insert we've just bought. Quite an unusual beast....

Some tiles...

Dark surround and tiled insert

Ref: 2513


This set up shows a fire that is a bit cheaper than some of our others, as the surround, which is pine, has been stained, so it has to remain like this or be painted, and the insert is a reproduction ...

Some tiles...

Pine surround and tiled insert

Ref: 2512


This surround is lucky to still be about. From a cottage that was being demolished outside Falkirk, half the building had been pushed over and we could see this half buried by rubble. It was too dange...

Small pine surround with tiled insert

Very large black marble fire surround

Ref: 2510

Some tiles...

Pics pine surround and arched insert

Ref: 2504


This came from Edinburgh and looks like pitch pine but doesn't have the weight so may be cedar? Anyway, its a good looking fire, nice and clean with only a bit of damage at the bottom by the feet wher...
