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.
Good pine and gesso surround
Nice early pine and gesso surround from Edinburghs new town. 100% original and in pretty good shape. These always have a really large opening which would have had marble slips and then an iron grate. ...
Small pine surround
Just back from being stripped, this came from Dumfries and is about as small as you'll see in a pine surround. The insert is perhaps a little too big for it but we have others that are more suitable....
Pine fire with roundels
My current favourite fire (and we have 2 of them!) This fire came from an old council building and we were invited to strip the building out (at a price) the day before it was flattened, so lucky our ...
Nice combination fire with really crisp detailing, if you compare this to one of the reproduction ones the quality of the casting is incomparable. This one would need to have a back built up with fire...
Greenock school inserts
We have half a dozen of these from the old Mearns st school in Greenock that was pulled down a while ago (we also have the massive stone surrounds that went with them). They all had 8 inch tiles in th...
Pine surround with square insert
Rather nice and simple yellow pine surround which has a rounded edge to the shelf, making it look a bit more delicate, shown with a Georgian square insert. Surround like these were made over such a lo...
A very little fella this one, from a small bedroom or a maids room and dating to about 1910. Ready to go and having a back with a damper means that it can be fitted into the wall without getting any d...
Green tiled combination
This one came from Edinburgh, from an 1870's terrace and although it has a 16 inch opening, its overall dimensions are fairly small. Not having a back on it makes it ideal for a living gas fire (thoug...
copper canopied tiled insert
I had to quickly renovate this insert for a customer who then went down the stove line, so this pic shows the insert all cleaned up, with its tiles back in and its canopy polished to within an inch of...
very large black marble surround
Not looking its best in these pics, but we set it up in a hurry for someone and its turned out to be too big for his room, but it was such a pig to set up that we can't face taking it down again-not y...
Red tiled combination
From a job we did near Bristo square in Edinburgh, one of 4 large combination fires, all sort of matching and dating to the early 20th century, though the building was a fair bit older. While its quit...
I think we bought this one from an old railway cottage in Dalry, anyway, Little combination fire with a 13.5 inch opening and its original back. These ones with their backs are always popular as you c...
simple pine surround
Pretty much always got a few of these in stock, but here's our latest. Nice and clean and shown with a tiled insert which I think is shown elsewhere on the site, but which we got from a job we did in ...
polished mahogany Edwardian surround
Great condition mahogany surround from about 1905 (shown here with a simple and much earlier insert).Great colour....
painted gesso fire and Georgian insert
This may be on the site already but I think its one I keep forgetting to list. Anyway, its an Edwardian copy of a Georgian surround, which was fairly commonplace back then-even the combination fires w...
Not something we ever come across now, they always go to auction, but this one was being used as a planter outside a farm when we bought it and we were told that it originally came from the old Lochwi...
Just one of the many new fires that we've recently bought. This dates to about 1880 and is from the west end of Edinburgh. Its been polished, but can easily be black leaded again. The one with the bra...
square insert and pine surround
Good simple pine surround shown with a rather unusual square insert which is one of 12 we recently bought from a school in Greenock that was demolished. The fires were originally tiled with an oversiz...
Cast Iron Insert
Great arched insert with a 17 inch opening that we've had extended so that the overall size is 42 inches sq (this can be tucked behind the legs of any insert). Its one of a couple of quite early inser...
Good simple arched insert that we've had extended to be just over 41 inches sq. Complete with its original back. I've classified it as being Georgian as I know where it came from, but its of a style t...
chunky stone fires
We've recently taken 3 of these stone fires out of a school that was being demolished in Greenock. They are a pale coloured stone under the thick paint and should scrub up pretty well.Its a type we,ve...
Painted tile & timber surround
First fire surround that we've ever had like this, though I've seen a few in grand houses up north. This one came from a large detached property in St Andrews & has been more or less hand stripped by ...
new batch of fires
It always looks exciting to see new stock coming in, especially when it looks tired and in need of TLC. these 4 fires came from a turn of the century house in Alexandria. The nicotine yellow one at th...
small early hob with stone and timber surround
Shown as we found it. Very early hourglass hob in a stone surround with the sort of timber surround that has very spindly legs and a more substantial shelf and facia. The hob is off to our blacksmiths...
