I love this fireplace, it has such a look to it, there are stones decorating it with a place to store the fire wood. There is a metal gate, but it is not original to the piece, but it came together, so I am keeping it together... it is a Dept.56. The fireplace stands just over 4" tall and it is 6" long. This is a sweet piece and perfect for your dollhouse and you can set little items on the mantle.
