The Daily Express is today “Warming to Winter” on page 48 which is a good job because on the front page it says: “BIG SIBERIAN FREEZE TO HIT BRITAIN”. They are rightly enthused with the fireplace furniture that we salvaged from The Foreign & Commonwealth Office including firetools, mesh spark guards, and fenders.
The piece reads as follows:
“Reclaim Your Heritage”
Reclamation expert Lassco of Oxfordshire has recently acquired a quantity of amazing old fenders from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office along with firescreens and firedogs. Fenders are priced at £250, representing great value for a beautifully engineered and lovely old item. Also shown here is a Siena marble inlaid chimneypiece typical of the individual pieces available from this company.”
