Is this fireplace original?

Hi there,

We’ve just moved into a Victorian terrace house, we believe it was built roughly 1890s. It’s a project. Anyway, I was wondering if this fireplace would have been the original one and if so how best to go about restoring the tiles (we’re not bothered about making it fire-worthy).

It’s got a gas line into it so it’s either been converted somewhere down the line or completely replaced.

I’m not particularly keen of these tiles or even the wood surround so I’m quite hoping people will say it’s not original!

The fire place is in the front room but I’ll include a pic of the fireplace in the middle room for comparison. (Also interested in that one too)

Please excuse the mess. Were still finding our feet.
