A few new arrivals

There has been a lot of coming and going at the workshop of late and I will try to bring this blog up to date over the coming weeks.
Here is three pictures of some ranges that arrived this week. A very nice 'Mrs Sam' type range manufactured by Dobbie Forbes Ltd, a Larbert with boiler by the same and a lovelly little "Nipper" stove from Lane & Girven.

24″ Guidwife back cabin stove

This nice littel 24" Guidwife back cabin stove just came into stock. They were commonly found in the back cabins of working narrowboats. We manufacture the correct type of fiddle rail and this will be refitted to the range during restoration. If you are interested please do get in touch since these stoves don't come up very often!


Here is a little "Nipper" that came in this week for restoration. It is having a new top plate and new flue box as well as the more general restoration work. The cream mottled enamel is in pretty good order and will be kept. This is a very nice example of a rare sought after stove and it was found at a car boot sale for £25 would you beleive! Don't forget O.J.Osborne & Co manufacture brand new "Nipper" stoves and they are available for £1500 in black lead finish. Enamelled finish is also available but please get in touch for a quote.

New workshop

Well we have finally begun the move to the new (much larger) workshop so thank you to all those who have been patient during this time. You can expect big changes to the website, services and products over the coming months with some exciting new developments like the manufacture of very high quality replica 'Nipper' stoves, 'Hostess' ranges and authentic Larbert and Guidwife 'Back cabin stoves'! I will post with more details on this as time goes on. All the best. Olly
