Details of Victorian Fireplaces

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 collapsing due to subsidence (we were not allowed to use power tools or remove any of the lovely iron spindles for fear of the building collapsing-sounds a little dramatic but them was the rules)Part of the deal was that the best couple of fires were to be removed by us for the demolition contractor, 10 years later and they got in touch to say they weren't needed and here we are. Really grand, lovely big shelf, elegant mouldings to the inner jamb and yet the aperture isn't impractically huge.
Somewhere we have a pic of one of the others re installed into a property which I will try to find just to show how good it looked.
PLEASE NOTE. This fire has now been sold and whilst it's true that we still have 2 others, as well as all sorts of other marble fires waiting in the wings, they all need work. Stripping (sometimes revealing unforseen problems) and glue ing and sometimes having new pieces cut and this takes time. We are currently rather behind with lists of things we need to sort out for folk and I am going to have to put this work on the back burner for a few months while we catch up.
