Early hob fire with stone and pine surround
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 partially boarded up in its Georgian outbuilding, now long demolished.
Its cleaned up well, the pine was stripped and is clean, the stone has had all the old distemper washed off it and the hob has had new inner cheeks made for it and been blasted and black leaded and now its ready for its new home.
If I had one criticism i'd say it almost looks too clean, it needs a bit of soot and dirt put back on, but I expect that will happen
