We restored and installed 2 original marble surrounds with 2 antique Victorian cast iron tiled inserts. One with a slate hearth and the other installed on the original Victorian tiled hearth, which will be re tiled eventually in Clapham, South West London.
We removed an original Victorian marble surround and a reproduction cast iron arched insert from a property undergoing an extensive restoration. The marble surround was stripped into separate parts before all the parts were polished and then rebuilt. The cast iron arch was sandblasted and refinished in a traditional grate polish finish before being measured for a made to measure gas coal effect fire. The whole fireplace was reinstalled on a slate hearth for use as a gas coal effect fireplace.

After the restoration process. Uncategorized
We removed an antique original Victorian cast iron surround and Victorian cast iron tiled insert fireplace for restoration. Once back in the workshop it was all sandblasted in house to get it back to the bare metal of the original casting. From there a light coat of black paint was applied before everything was polished to produce a pewter like effect, the remaining black paint in the depth of the detail makes everything stand out and makes a stunning fireplace.
Once refitted, we tiled the hearth with the customers own tiles. The fireplace was fitted as a purely decorative feature, maybe one day housing a gel burner. Pics up soon. Uncategorized
