    We have an old house with small coal-burning fireplaces. We have seen gas burning "coal-effect" fires in England, but our local stove dealers don't seem to have even heard of this.
    The only manufacturer I've been able to identify is a Belgian firm: Bodart & Gonay. Do you know anyone else who makes a fireplace insert that looks like coal (rather than wood)? Is it possible to get a dealer list, if anyone in this country sells this type of item? Thanks for any info you can provide.


    There were some companies that sold these, but the market was so small that they stopped importing them . Peterson gas logs make gas fireplace "logs" that have the coal basket look and effect. However, they are an open fire and not designed for heat. A company called "Valor" sells a coal effect stove or insert...I think they are on the web...Give a try for Valor Fireplaces in a search engine.
