Unusual Vintage Electric Fire @ £15.00
Here is an extremely unusual all wooden electric fire, presumably meant to sit on the hearth of an existing fireplace. Or I suppose it could be used as a freestanding fire anywhere in the dolls house? It is quite chunky in size, so please take note of measurements before ordering. I love this, it is quite striking and effective. I cannot make up my mind if this has been commercially produced or homemade, but whoever constructed it, made it well! Age is unknown too, but there is certainly some age to this….perhaps 1950s (could even be 1930s)? It has been given a dark brown painted finish with coordinating lighter coloured strips up each side and along the top edge. The central piece has been painted in a silver metal kind of finish, complete with two brightly painted element strips in red, orange and yellow…absolutely fabulous. On each side there are two imitation wooden switches – please note these do not move and are for effect only. On the back there is remnants of something that was once stuck on the back lower left..perhaps it may have been a label? Overall this is in a good played with condition, some wear to the paintwork, particularly the top as the paint is a little bubbled/crinkled. Measures 2 7/8″ overall width to end of switches x 2 1/4″ high x 1 1/4″ depth.

Quite chunky so more suitable for larger scale dolls house or old dolls house where scale does not matter.
