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...

Early hob fire with stone and pine surround

Ref: 2264


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...

Some tiles...

Oak fire surround

Ref: 2263


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...

Some tiles...

Bellows

Ref: 2259


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...

Some tiles...

Fruity combination

Ref: 2258


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...

Some tiles...

very nice pine surround

Ref: 2256


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...

Some tiles...

Nicer than the norm pine fire surround

Ref: 2249


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...

Some tiles...

Tiled combination fire

Ref: 2246


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 ...

Some tiles...

Red tiled fire insert

Ref: 2242


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...

Some tiles...

Grand Georgian insert

Ref: 2231


One of the grandest fires we've had for a while, and one of the heaviest. From Edinburgh's New Town, it arrived without its back panel which we've replaced. In the pic you can see odd marks on the bac...

Some tiles...

Lovely marble fire surround

Ref: 2229


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...

Some tiles...

Small pine surround with arched insert

Ref: 2228


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...

Some tiles...

Large early Victorian arched insert

Ref: 2226


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,...

Some tiles...

Very large oak surround

Ref: 2215


Awful pics I'm afraid, not enough room in the warehouse to stand back and take the pic, and it was dark, but it'll do for now. This actually came from a Georgian/early Victorian flat in Edinburghs wes...

Some tiles...

Oak surround

Ref: 2213


Good oak surround which we haven't got round to stripping yet, and it hardly seems worth it as the original finish is still so good. From a turn of the century house on the south side.The inside measu...

Some tiles...

Broon tiled combination fire

Ref: 2196


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 ...

Some tiles...

Pine surround with Georgian square insert

Ref: 2193


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...

Some tiles...

Celtic combination

Ref: 2189


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....

Some tiles...

Very decorative large combination fire

Ref: 2188


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...

Some tiles...

Fresh into the warehouse

Ref: 2187


Just in, one of 9 fireplaces we recently bought from a demolition up the east coast (though sadly this was the only cast iron interior to still be there). Nice art nouveau patterned metal insert with ...

Some tiles...

Gothic combination fire

Ref: 2186


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....

Some tiles...

Pine surround with art nouveau tiled insert

Ref: 2184


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...

Some tiles...

Fairly grand pine surround

Ref: 2182


This came from the New town in Edinburgh, though its not Georgian, I'd say it was from about 1890. Lots of detail and in good condition, though the shelf is a darker colour( the pic I've taken seems t...

Some tiles...

Wooden fire guard/screen

Ref: 2161


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...

Some tiles...

Arts and crafts surround

Ref: 2119


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 ...

Some tiles...

Middling sized marble surround

Ref: 2116


Very annoying this surround. We spent ages stripping it to show someone who specifically wanted a fire with a bullnose edged shelf (which this one had) and then when we went to set it up, as we lifted...
