    Hey all. First post here, currently in the process of exposing and restoring an old fireplace in my circa 1880 home. I've attached some photos of the original metal fireplace I have exposed and am restoring. I would just love to find out some more about the fire place who made it etc, if anyone could help or point me in the right direction I would be eternally grateful!

    It is an old and very incomplete coal burner. You only chance of finding parts would be antique shops or estate sales. But that is very unlikely

    The squirrel may be a clue. Morso has used the this as a symbol on their stoves. Maybe send the images to them for id?

    That burned canal coal. That was one step above peat. Common in city homes at the time.
