PERFECT Antique Wood Stove

Click photo to Enlarge
I saw this amazing wood stove in an old house today. Don't you love the name? It's PERFECT.

This is a detail of the left door. The middle one is dated 1886. I can't imagine using a wood stove to cook on in the summer but it was just another day in the kitchen, back then. We have it so easy now, don't we? I say that after spending time hacking away at my driveway entrances with a pickaxe today. It was finally time to deal with the white stuff the snowplows left for me as I wait for more snow tonight. As soon as I recover from one storm, another one comes along. I haven't been to the post office since last Wednesday. Be safe and stay warm if you are getting snow too. xo

Hi Rosemary,

Great Stove! I hope the home was as charming.
I just love homes that have not been touched and some
lucky person will get to warm up near that stove.

I share your pain with this weather as I too am in NJ.
Almost slipped off an embankment this morning.
Praying for Spring to come soon!

I've prayed for snow, but not the ice we had this week. I could have used this stove for staying warm and cooking. Our county was declared a state of emergency. Middle GA? Strange. They say we get more in two weeks. Have to get a new roof for the house and the car. Yikes.

Hiya there, I discovered your site via Yahoo while searching for a related topic, your web-site came up, it looks fantastic. I have book marked it in my Google book marks.

I have a stove almost exactly like that in my own kitchen. Just a few little differences. But otherwise the same stove. It warms a big part of our home and it bakes a delicious ham and a great soup. So nice to see that there are more out there:)

The stove has certainly aged well. It looks great.
