    Not sure if this is the right place to ask. I have to replace the fire basket in my old Edwardian/Victoria fire surround. The present basket, (old - broken) one is flat, with three legs, bowed at the front. Measurements are roughly 13.5" across the front, 10" across the back, 8" deep. I have tried internet, locally and cannot find anything to match. If I had one made it would probably be expensive but can anyone suggest suppliers? Photo attached of surround. Many thanks for any help.

    Thank you for your replies. I looked at e bay but they have mainly the sort that curve up at the front and because of the 'teeth' on the inside of the grill front part of my surround, a curved top of basket would not fit. I attach photos of the now broken one, I could only find a soup tin of the right height IMG_2175.JPG IMG_2174.JPG to

    raise the broken bits to level it off for the photos!

    Might it be worth your while getting it welded up? With a bit of good welding, it could last for years..

    Thank you both for your replies. The tulip grate from gr8fires looks hopeful. I don't think I had tried them. The basket measurements of my present one are slightly smaller so I will measure the grate opening to see if it will fit. Otherwise, welding may be the answer. Thank you both for taking the trouble to reply.
