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 with small sq insert

Ref: 3205


Nice simple pine surround of the type found in poor tenements to grand houses and from the 1800's to 1900 shown with a late Georgian square insert which I think suits it nicely. Its a bedroom insert r...

Some tiles...

Carved pine surround with large arched insert

Ref: 3194


Rather a heavily varnished surround we bought from Rutherglen a while ago. Its a type of pine that doesn't strip well, so it would be best to leave it as it is or paint it, dating to around 1900. The ...

Some tiles...

Marble surround and insert

Ref: 3013


Just finished stripping the paint off this marble fire and it seems nice and clean. It came from a tenement up in Woodlands and is shown with an insert dating to the 1860's that has been extended to b...

Some tiles...

Extended arched insert

Ref: 2961


Quite an early arched insert, probably late Georgian, but they used to use the same moulds for years and years so it would suit most houses. Its got an 18 inch opening which is bigger than normal and ...

Some tiles...

Simple pine surround and insert

Ref: 2908


Good clean pine surround of a type seen across the land from 1800 to 1900 (this one came from a flat in the west end of Edinburgh dating to the 1860's which had marble fires in the principal rooms and...

Some tiles...

Typical arched insert

Ref: 2906


We have dozens and dozens of arched inserts patiently waiting to be restored, but it all takes time, sourcing missing bits, doing smith work, shot blasting and black leading, but this is a typical one...

Some tiles...

Marble fire surround

Ref: 2807


We bought this, like so many others, coated in paint and have recently finished stripping it and its OK. Its not the cleanest one we've ever had but its fine and is a little cheaper than normal.There...

Some tiles...

Companion sets

Ref: 2780


about a year ago I posted a pic of part of a huge collection of companion sets on our Facebook page, about 20 boxes of bits, they'd all been taken to pieces and I stupidly thought my children would en...

Some tiles...

Fairly large black marble fire surround

Ref: 2768


Decent sized marble fire shown here just before we removed it from a house in Lenzie. A touch more detail than some we see with its extra inner trim and mini capitols. The surface has dulled a bit ove...

Some tiles...

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...

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...
