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.
Simple pine surround with arched insert
Lovely arched insert with an 19 inch opening (unusually big) that we've had extended to be 42 inches sq, really nice crisp pattern on it. The surround came from an 1860's house over in Dunoon which w...
Carnoustie fire surround
One of several fire surrounds we bought from a demolition in Carnoustie a while back, all ever so slightly different, and all surprisingly hard to remove. The one shown was the unlucky first one to be...
Simple tiled insert
Good simple tiled insert with nice old brown tiles. 16.5 inch opening....
Really not sure how old this is, we hardly ever come across them. It has an aluminium badge on the reverse with various details on it so I assume its fairly new. Anyway, lovely looking stove with a to...
Unusual two tone fire surround
This was a surprise when it came back from being stripped, but I actually rather like it. We bought it from a flat just off Byers road where it was in a bedroom (its fairly small). Most of it is your ...
Early hob fire with stone and pine surround
Well its taken an aeon to finish restoring this one, but at long last, victory. This is the fire you can see earlier on the web site as gas ref 1811, shown in situ, recently exposed but still partiall...
Oak fire surround
Very nice oak surround which we've just stripped (it was painted white) It came from a large house in Dennison and its a very well made piece with all sorts of curves etc which I'm told are relatively...
The first bellows we've ever had I think, and they look pretty old. So old in fact, they could do with having the leather re done but I think it must be quite unusual to see such old examples a...
We've had this pattern a few times over the years, and its always proved to be popular. This is the one with a 16 inch opening, (you also get much smaller bedroom ones) and its covered with patterns a...
very nice pine surround
And it looked so forlorn when we bought it, with its shelf off, stored above a workshop in an old shed in Slammannan. Now its about the cleanest fire we have, and coming from a rather grand ho...
Nicer than the norm pine fire surround
Such a crisply made surround. Best quality pine, clean as a whistle and not too big. This came from a job we did a while back in the Dowanhill area of Glasgow, so it will date to the 1880's...
Tiled combination fire
This is a style we see quite a lot in Glasgow, and this one has, at some stage had its tiles replaced with a set of reproduction tiles which are perfectly nice, but just not what we deal in, so we've ...
Red tiled fire insert
Good sized tiled insert with a growling lions head on the canopy, much in the style you see on the fronts of buildings. The tiles can be changed if necessary but I think they look quite 'strong' which...
Lovely marble fire surround
Nicer than average, and also larger than most, this lovely surround came from a large house in Prestwick dating to the 1880's. Having the angled inner trim makes it a more delicate looking thing and i...
Small pine surround with arched insert
About as small as you will get while still having the standard chunky legs. ( you do see skinnier surrounds but the legs are little more than strips of mouldings). It actually came from Dumfries, alon...
Large early Victorian arched insert
Good early half round insert that we've had extended. This basically means that we've fitted a new flat plate to the front of the insert, cut around the detailing so that the overall sizes are bigger,...
Broon tiled combination fire
This fire has been my nemesis for a while now, and will be for a bit longer I fear. Its a great piece, dating to about 1910 but in order to get it sandblasted (it was thick with paint) I took all the ...
Pine surround with Georgian square insert
Good simple pine surround from the 1880's (though its a style that can be seen anywhere from the 1800's until about the start of the first war). Quite a large opening and shown with an insert dating t...
Always a popular style, and we've had a few over the years, generally from houses dating to 1900-1910. This one has its original back, flap, grate etc and is just ready to go.12 inch opening....
Very decorative large combination fire
Its got it all this one. Its as if the person who designed it wanted to cram as many bits of detailing into it as possible. Swags on the canopy, as well as fruit, birds on the facia, the odd flower he...
Gothic combination fire
We've had a few these over the years, for some reason usually from Edinburgh, and here's another, fresh from Morningside where its been since the 1880's. 15.5 inch opening....
Pine surround with art nouveau tiled insert
One of 3 pine surrounds we bought recently (2 have overmantel mirrors) shown with a nice tiled insert we got from a house being pulled down just north of Glasgow. The insert still has all its original...
Wooden fire guard/screen
Quite arts and crafts in their style, a couple of fire screens from a grand house up north. Oak with a rear leg to prop them up. One of them has the top trim missing and if someone out there has a bet...
Arts and crafts surround
One of my fave fires at the moment, from a cottage north of Glasgow soon to be demolished and one of 3 surrounds from the job (one already sold and the other a bit different). Its made of Douglas fir ...
