Coal Baskets that Burn Gas
look and warmth of Victorian Coal Burning baskets


Coal Baskets simulate the effect of a more subtle real coal fire; reminiscent of a simpler more elegant time in our history.
The  coals in the basket actually glow as they're warmed by the natural gas or propane burner, the flame pattern of VENT FREE COAL BURNERS is not as wide and the flame height is shorter, requiring much less gas to provide a realistic, appealing effect.   
The Coal Baskets  were first imported  but soon the need for CSA certified gas coal grates for the US and Canadian markets made American production for  Coal baskets necessary for this Southern US based family business.  
Searching for antique grates and surrounds to be reproduced exclusively  for their Coal Baskets, the company began to put together a product line of decorative, beautiful grates and accessories.


The fireplace has long been regarded as the focal point for any home, and in the late 1800's, coal fires were the height of fashion.
Even when not burning, the decorative cast iron basket still look great in your fireplace!
Gas coal fires are found in the finest homes in Great Britain, the US and Canada as well as in centuries old Public Houses, Castles and Palaces.  They are easy to install and can be taken with you should you decide to move.

Vent free coal baskets install in existing coal burning fireplaces!


Vented coal Baskets have been around for many years.  "Vented" literally designates the requirement of that gas coal basket to be installed in an approved vented real working fireplace or an approved (certified) manufactured vented fireplace system (vented box).

                                         Typical features of vented coal baskets are:
  • more  choices in coal grate styles and flame appearance available
  • less restrictive clearance requirements to mantels above
  • must be installed in approved and working fireplace with chimney
  • all products of combustion must be vented out of the house
  • Most heat will be vented to outside
  • typically has larger flame and higher gas consumption
  • good choice where appearance is of prime importance
  • can be used in areas like bedrooms where vent-free coal baskets are prohibited
