Not sure where else to post this. We bought a house with an antique electric fireplace. I don't know how to post pictures to this forum, but I have a blog I posted them to. I'll describe it here so you have an idea of it. It is cast iron with some brass. It takes three bulbs (none present currently) that look like they are visible when on, not hidden or obscured by a screen. It has a push-button on/off switch that is very much like the other ones in our house (for our light switches). Our house is circa 1910-1915 in Ontario, Canada (Ottawa area).
Any help identifying the make/type of this fireplace would be greatly appreciated. We're having our house rewired in a week or so and I want to know if I can get replacement bulbs for this or if it can be safetly rewired to use modern wiring instead of the knob-and-tube that currently is connected to it.
