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.

Pine surround and tiled insert

Ref: 3513


Been a tricky surround to strip this one. It had been hand stripped before and then finished with a high gloss polyurethane varnish which aint always easy to get off. All done now though and as we've ...

Some tiles...

Bedroom combination

Ref: 3512


Stylish little combination fire with its original back, making it a shoe in if you just want a fire for show as all you need to do is screw it to the wall. If you want to use it, and there's no reason...

Some tiles...

Combination fireplace

Ref: 3511


With a 16 inch opening this falls between two categories, either a large bedroom combination or a small living room one. Its a pattern that we used to see quite a lot, especially in Edinburgh, though ...

Some tiles...

Small slate fire surround

Ref: 3510


Small bedroom slate fireplace we recently removed from a house in Edinburgh and had stripped, shown with the original arched insert that has been with it for the last 140 years or so. Sizes to ...

Some tiles...

Cast iron fire surround

Ref: 3497


Dark image, but you get the idea, a large cast iron surround with a timber shelf, as is almost always the case, at least you won't get black lead on your clothes when you lean on it. Ideal for a stove...

Some tiles...

Victorian mahogany surround

Ref: 3496


From a big Victorian villa in Glasgows South side and recently cleaned and polished and re installed prior to being removed again as the buildings layout changed. Its a large grand thing and is just r...

Some tiles...

Large grand marble fireplace

Ref: 3495


A truly lovely fire, shown before we've done anything to it. It was one of about 5 identical ones we bought many years ago from the tenements by Glasgow Academy (Colebrooke terrace) that were collapsi...

Some tiles...

Pine surround

Ref: 3494


Rescued along with another fire from a pile waiting to be burnt up near Inverness by a builder we deal with, perfectly decent pine surround in great condition. As is sometimes the case, it looks home ...

Some tiles...

Cheaper Georgian marble fire

Ref: 3491


Well it looks very grey in the pic but it's a lot whiter than that. It is basically a Georgian marble surround that originally came from just off the east end of Princes St in Edinburgh, it was painte...

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...

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...

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...

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...
