Original Fireplaces

Why you can never beat original fireplaces

By rights, the finest Pilsners should be brewed in Pilsen. Given the choice of a cover version or the original song, in most instances you would plump for the latter. The same is also true with fireplaces: original fireplaces that have been the product of hard graft, long hours and extreme working conditions. Though with several times more charm than a reproduction piece.

Our originals have been made by esteemed foundries throughout the United Kingdom and mainland Europe. For example, the Baxendale Iron Foundry, who are known today as Baxi – for their central heating systems. Some come with the original tilework and the detail on many of our original fireplaces is astounding.

The accessories and fire surrounds we have chosen, have had the same attention to detail. Everything from the coal bucket to the firedogs. That is apparent in our work, which sees the fireplace and fire surround restored to original condition. Exactly as the manufacturer or foundry had intended it to be.

The result of our efforts? Happy customers, proud of how our restored original fireplaces look in the living room, drawing room, or master bedroom.
