Antique Victorian fireplace restoration

We took on a complete restoration of a Victorian combination fireplace. The restoration included sandblasting, replacing the hood, welding the back and refinishing in our black heatproof paint. We are one of the only, if not the only company, who can carry out this sort of restoration in house from start to finish. image The fireplace at our starting point, note the hood had previously been broken off. image The same fireplace after sandblasting, the hood and a set of front bar and ashpan cover had been added. We still had the firebrick to set and the spray paint finish to complete. image The fireplace with firebrick set. The paint is still wet at this point. .
