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...

Bedroom combination

Ref: 3486


Nice little combination from the Gorgie area of Edinburgh. A pattern we see quite often but none the worse for that. Just popular I guess. It was from a bedroom and has a 14 inch opening....

Some tiles...

Smaller marble fireplace

Ref: 3484


This one came from a decent sized bedroom in a flat near the Botanics in Glasgow. What more can I say? a decent marble fire surround....

Some tiles...

Pine surround

Ref: 3483


Good simple pine surround of the kind found in tenements and farm houses, cottages and stately homes (well, in the servants quarters) throughout the nineteenth century. This one is perhaps a little gr...

Some tiles...

Beech (?) Surround

Ref: 3480


Poor old fire, this was a fire that, as it had to be hand stripped, languished at the back of the building behind lots of other fires waiting (and waiting) to be restored. I pulled it out during the m...

Some tiles...

Tall painted pine surround with overmantel mirror

Ref: 3479


Very tall pine fire surround with overmantel mirror from the Jordanhill area, sizes to follow. It could be stripped, but the mirror would have to be removed first....

Some tiles...

Cast iron fire surround

Ref: 3454


Cast iron fire surround we bought in Edinburgh a while ago with, as is often the case, a wooden shelf....

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround and tiled insert

Ref: 3452


This is the original Victorian tiled insert that came to us painted a shocking pink which in some ways was quite nice though not what you'd call 'traditional'. The surround, which hasn't been stripped...

Some tiles...

Early arched insert

Ref: 3451


This came from a small but grand (but also roofless) Georgian house near Wormit on the north Fife coast. One of the nicest inserts we've had for a while, having the extra detailed bit (separately cast...

Some tiles...

Very small combination fireplace

Ref: 3424


Really very small combination which we recently bought in Edinburgh. It's one of those odd ones without lugs to fit it to the wall as it has ties behind the actual fire which make it a little more fid...

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 ...

Some tiles...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Some tiles...

Carved pine surround with large arched insert

Ref: 3194


Rather a heavily varnished surround we bought from Rutherglen a while ago. Its a type of pine that doesn't strip well, so it would be best to leave it as it is or paint it, dating to around 1900. The ...

Some tiles...

Marble surround and insert

Ref: 3013


Just finished stripping the paint off this marble fire and it seems nice and clean. It came from a tenement up in Woodlands and is shown with an insert dating to the 1860's that has been extended to b...

Some tiles...

Extended arched insert

Ref: 2961


Quite an early arched insert, probably late Georgian, but they used to use the same moulds for years and years so it would suit most houses. Its got an 18 inch opening which is bigger than normal and ...

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround and insert

Ref: 2908


Good clean pine surround of a type seen across the land from 1800 to 1900 (this one came from a flat in the west end of Edinburgh dating to the 1860's which had marble fires in the principal rooms and...
