Have attached a pic. Bought a cast iron fireplace to fix up from a scrap yard and ideally would like to keep the hearth but the middle has been taken out sad Is it possible to match up the tiles from somewhere?

there is a factory making encaustic and other Victorian patterns of tile, I think they might be in Stoke. Have a google.

They are not cheap, but you don't need many.

You will be lucky to get a matching design.

A compromise might be to find some plain Victoria's glazed tiles for the middle bit? Cheaper for you and could look ok, if you pick well.

You could try searching ebay as well.
