Can also be used, by removing the cast iron firebox, to create an electric fireplace with historic flair.

*NOTE this item ships to us from London, so the price includes overseas shipping. When we can combine orders to ship on the same pallet then the price is less, so ask about substantial discounts available when you order 2 or more, or if we're able to combine your order with others to help share freight costs. We generally will have 1 shipment per month and overseas freight takes about a month, so lead time can be 8-10 weeks by the time shipments wait for customs inspection and release.
This opening of the Birkbeck also fits the Portrait electric insert.
The back plate is sized so that our small mantels will overlap it.
