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.

Green tiled insert with brass canopy

Ref: 3398


And this fellow came from near Perth, nice having the brass canopy, 16 inch opening....

Some tiles...

White marble fire surround

Ref: 3397


Fairly early marble fire, possibly Georgian, which came from a house in Kirkintilloch. These earlier fires often have no mouldings under the shelf, but a square block at the top of each leg with a sim...

Some tiles...

Red marble fire surround

Ref: 3396


This one came from Hyndland and is a little cheaper than it would otherwise be as the facia has been cracked ( and fixed ). It dates to the 1870's and still has its original label on the back indicati...

Some tiles...

Marble fire surround

Ref: 3395


Typical marble fireplace as seen in so many Scottish tenements though perhaps a shade smaller than the norm. I seem to remember this one actually came from the south side of Edinburgh....

Some tiles...

Small but tall timber surround

Ref: 3394


Nice slim little fireplace here which in my opinion should really remain painted ( the wreath like details in the top corners are gesso and therefore tricky to strip ). Yellow pine. Its ...

More surrounds recently arrived awaiting restoration

Ref: 3393


Just a quick pic of a few surrounds awaiting stripping or fixing. And of course there are more stuffed wherever we can fit them...

Some tiles...

Square insert with wide opening

Ref: 3390


Nice simple square insert with an 18 inch opening as opposed to the more usual 16. These simple square inserts seem to be amongst the earliest designs we see and were used right through the Victorian ...

Some tiles...

Unusual surround from Dundee

Ref: 3389


This came from a large merchants office in the centre of Dundee and we actually have 2 of them, plus a black marble one. I rather like the style, though it is quite unusual, it's the sort of design th...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert

Ref: 3371


Tiled insert with a very bold and well defined casting. Dating to the 1870's and with very attractive original floral tiles....

Some tiles...

Large arched insert

Ref: 3370


Arched insert with a 16 inch opening which we've got our blacksmith to attach a new plate to the front, making it 42 inches sq which should be big enough to fit most surrounds. Shown with the p...

Some tiles...

Latest combination

Ref: 3369


Rather a fancy combination fire we've recently restored which came from a Victorian tenement somewhere or other, 16 inch opening so a reasonable size....

Some tiles...

Cast iron fire surround

Ref: 3366


We removed this from a flat in central Edinburgh last week. We don't see an awful lot of cast iron surrounds which is a shame as they tend to be very popular (ideal for stoves I hear). The flat it cam...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert with ammonite motif

Ref: 3363


Its taken me a long time to clean this up, but finally, a tiled insert with rather unusual tiles with some sort of ammonite or nautilus design. 16 inch opening and measuring 38 inches by 38 overall. I...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert

Ref: 3360


I couldn't resist stripping this fire as it came into us painted a lurid pink. 16 inch opening and all original. We also have the oak surround that came with it, but, also being bright pink, it will t...

Some tiles...

Tiled combination

Ref: 3345


Very pretty tiled combination we bought from a large estate in the Borders. Lots of detail with cornucopia's spilling forth the fruits of the earth on the facia and corn etc spilling down the legs. It...

Some tiles...

Unusual timber surround

Ref: 3343


Looking like someone has split a newel post in half, here we have a very unusual (and 100% original) pine surround which would look great in an eccentric study or some such. The insert (which didn't c...

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround and insert

Ref: 3342


This came from a flat just to the north of the Botanics and dates to around the turn of the century (the last one, not this one). Shown with an insert with a 16 inch opening, so suitable for a standar...

Some tiles...

Oak fire surround

Ref: 3326


Good sized oak fire surround from a tenement in Marchmont in Edinburgh. It has its original varnish on and while some people like this, I find it rather gloomy and intend to strip in, hopefully giving...

Some tiles...

Older companion sets

Ref: 3325


From a job we did recently up at Blair castle, some Georgian/Victorian companion sets for those of you who find our extensive collection of 20th century brass ones with their spaniel/galleon/Rabbie Bu...

Some tiles...

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...
