This is the best photo we have; Rob and Monica found it at an estate sale--marked Japan--it lights up--there's a Santa image in the fireplace, the remnants of stockings, and that top panel really had little pixies printed on it.

It reminded me of the fireplaces that Howard makes--you can see those here https://www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@ ... 5pm-7RhTBL and here https://www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@ ... 5pm-7RhTBL

but with a kitschy edge

Howard's are more elegant

the one shown below is from the 1950's

Rob and Monica's site by the way is OURADVENTURESAMONGSTTHEDUCKS--they chronicle their weekly estate sale adventures http://www.ouradventuresamongsttheducks.blogspot.com/

if 1950s, I'm thinking late '50s, based on the pixie photo and general tackiness of the piece. :-)
