Solid fuel open fire - what front / fret?

I've had my old gas fire disconnected, the chimney swept, a new chimney pot and caul put on the top and am almost ready to start burning logs in the fireplace.

I've picked out an ash pan and a grate. But I'm really struggling to find a front / fret to put in front of the fire. The fire surround is brass / gold colour so I'd like it to match but all the nice modern looking brass fronts I find say they are not suitable for solid fuel fires. Here's a pic of the one I like...

Anybody got any ideas? I don't really want to change the surround to make it black or silver as I quite like the golod colour.

have you tried ebay or freecycle? As most people are dumping open fires due to their horrific inefficiency there are plenty of these around.

I sold the one here for a fiver although it wasn't the same as that.
