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.

Large white marble fire surround

Ref: 2526


Good big marble fire surround from the centre of Glasgow and dating to the 1870's. A little bit of extra detail in that it has inner legs capped by small mouldings which hold up the facia. It has a co...

Fireplace for an old fossil

Ref: 2518


Last summer I posted a pic of some great ammonites we found on our holidays down in Dorset, and carrying on with the theme, here's an ammonite-y tiled insert we've just bought. Quite an unusual beast....

Some tiles...

Dark surround and tiled insert

Ref: 2513


This set up shows a fire that is a bit cheaper than some of our others, as the surround, which is pine, has been stained, so it has to remain like this or be painted, and the insert is a reproduction ...

Some tiles...

Pine surround and tiled insert

Ref: 2512


This surround is lucky to still be about. From a cottage that was being demolished outside Falkirk, half the building had been pushed over and we could see this half buried by rubble. It was too dange...

Some tiles...

Small pine surround with tiled insert

Ref: 2511


Very pretty this one. Its a small pine surround, still waiting to be stripped, with a little tiled insert (13.5 inch opening) with some of the loveliest tiles I've seen, pansies in an art nouveau styl...

Some tiles...

Very large black marble fire surround

Ref: 2510


There's a pic of this earlier on the website (ref 2334 ) prior to its removal, but we've finally got round to setting it up at work which was a bit of a job as the shelf is so heavy (its 2.5 inches th...

Some tiles...

Pics pine surround and arched insert

Ref: 2504


This came from Edinburgh and looks like pitch pine but doesn't have the weight so may be cedar? Anyway, its a good looking fire, nice and clean with only a bit of damage at the bottom by the feet wher...

Some tiles...

Slightly unusual pine fire surround

Ref: 2500


This came from the old Partick Baptist church just off Byers rd, a beautiful slightly Grecian building dating to the 1860's ( I think) but which sadly has serious structural issues, though the bulk of...

Some tiles...

A few of our latest batch awaiting restoration

Ref: 2499


Indeed, those who have been to our yard will know that we have an awful lot of fires waiting to be restored, and we simply cannot catalogue them all, but here's a few nice ones. We don't mind if peopl...

Some tiles...

Very tall combination

Ref: 2485


Well this one was a right chunk to carry down 2 flights of stairs. We've only ever had one other fire of this dimension without tiles and this one came from a large building in the city centre dating ...

Some tiles...

Large grand amber fire surround

Ref: 2481


The sort of fire you'd expect to see in a grand west end property-shown just after it arrived, not cleaned up in any way, or even measured. We just had to quickly get it inside before the rain started...

Some tiles...

Large grand surround

Ref: 2474


No sizes yet, but just a quick pic of a rather grand fire we bought last week....

Some tiles...

Pine surround

Ref: 2463


We may already have a pic of these fires on the website, so apologies if its all a repetition, but we had 3 of these rather elegant fires (2 complete with overmantel mirrors). Very nice with their lit...

Some tiles...

Mahogany fire surround

Ref: 2462


I think this dates to about 1910 and it came from a house down towards Irvine where it was in the kitchen where a range had been, hence its rather large size. Just a good simple hardwood surrou...

Some tiles...

Unusual two tone surround

Ref: 2458


Rather unusual surround carefully made out of two contrasting types of timber, shown before we've sanded it down and waxed it which, to be honest, we're reluctant to do as its a bit of a 'marmite' fir...

Some tiles...

Unusual tiled insert

Ref: 2427


We bought about 8 of these some time ago from a large Victorian school in Greenock that was being pulled down, All with large stone surrounds and all, alas with quite a lot of damage to the tiles. Exc...

Some tiles...

Very large black male fire surround

Ref: 2334


Really grand black marble surround from an 1870's property in Dundee. Its never been painted so still has its original sheen, and it has a lovely edge to the shelf, which is a hefty old weight in itse...

Some tiles...

Early hob grate prior to removal

Ref: 2332


Nice Georgian hob with its top decorative panel which we removed, along with a similar one, from a house up Perthshire way. We've not restored it yet, or dipped the pine surround, but it should be a c...

Some tiles...

Very grand large fire surround

Ref: 2331


From the centre of Glasgow, this magnificent surround. It was from a large merchants house and is mahogany, so would need to be hand stripped, though I think its possibly nicer white? Lots of f...

Some tiles...

Tiled insert

Ref: 2325


From Trinity in Edinburgh, rather a nice tiled insert still with its original tiles and so on. 16 inch opening....

Some tiles...

Auchterarder combination fire

Ref: 2321


We bought 2 of these from a farm up by Gleneagles a few weeks ago. This one is now sold but we have its matching one, albeit without its back waiting to be cleaned up. Sizes to follow. T...

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround with arched insert

Ref: 2280


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...

Some tiles...

Carnoustie fire surround

Ref: 2279


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...

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...

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...
