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.

Tiny tiny fireplace

Ref: 2748


The smallest fireplace we've ever had, and we bought it from another fireplace dealer who said it was the smallest fireplace he'd ever had too. Goodness knows what sort of surround would have fitted i...

Some tiles...

Ached insert

Ref: 2746


One of the fancier patterned inserts we see, this one with a 17 inch opening which is quite large. It dates to around 1870 and this one came from Dundee. I'm not great at updating the site when items ...

Some tiles...

Georgian hob

Ref: 2732


Just a quick pic to show a Georgian hob waiting to be restored, as anyone who has been down to our yard will realise, we have a lot of fires waiting to be restored (as of the last stock take, over 400...

Some tiles...

Pine surround and arched insert

Ref: 2705


A typical and attractive pine surround with a rather decorative arched insert, the sort of thing that we generally always have in stock (though not always quite restored yet) We try to always have a g...

Some tiles...

Very large black marble fire surround

Ref: 2704


Rather unusual this one, its the sort of style you see in very grand hallways, where indeed this one came from (in Dundee). Its very grand and very black and would look terrific with a wood burner or ...

Some tiles...

Pine surround and tiled insert

Ref: 2672


Nice simple pine surround of the sort that can be found in houses and flats from the beginning to the end of the C19th, The inside legs of the surround are deeper than the outside legs on this one, wh...

Some tiles...

Late Georgian tiled insert

Ref: 2635


We've had a couple of these tiled inserts over the years, generally from Edinburgh's New Town. This one is fresh in and we haven't had a chance to restore it yet (mend the crack shown in the last pic ...

Some tiles...

Large simple pine surround

Ref: 2634


Nice big simple pine surround from a big detached house in Helensburgh dating to the 1880's, shown with an insert that appears elsewhere on the site from the same period.Surround now sold....

Some tiles...

Fancy trim fire insert

Ref: 2633


There's a lot going on with this one. From a grand 1870's house in Edinburgh, from the drawing room where it sat in a carved marble surround (which was kept- having a stove installed instead). ...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Greenock school inserts

Ref: 2070


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...

Some tiles...

very large black marble surround

Ref: 2047


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...

Some tiles...

Red tiled combination

Ref: 2042


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...

Some tiles...

painted gesso fire and Georgian insert

Ref: 1973


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...

Some tiles...

dog grate

Ref: 1953


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...

Some tiles...

recent arrival

Ref: 1923


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...

Some tiles...

square insert and pine surround

Ref: 1909


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...

Some tiles...

chunky stone fires

Ref: 1852


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...

Some tiles...

new batch of fires

Ref: 1814


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...
