Our 24th lights and fires are usually made with grain of rice bulbs and need to be powered using a 12 volt transformer connected to the mains.  If you prefer, they can be made with an LED powered by a 3 volt coin cell, like their 48th equivalents.  These LED versions are made to order and incur a small additional charge.  Please let us know if you require LEDs.

Approximate measurements for fires are provided in inches.

Closed Ranges
19th cent.  The fire is covered by a hotplate.  The heat is diverted via flues surrounding the oven and boiler before escaping up the chimney.  Plates, etc. could be kept warm on the shelf at the top of the range.
