Yeah, it looks to be a wood burning parlor stove. This stove commonly would have a cast iron fireplace type grate in it. Although it is designed for burning wood, it can burn soft coal if it has the grate in it. The shinny "dome top" should swing out of the way and reveal a flat cook top with removable lids like a regular wood/coal burning cook stove. You can load wood/coal through the top or through the main loading door. This type of stove is also not considered air tight because this stove is simply cast iron sections bolted together but they are good space heaters.
Is that pieces of the grate laying on the grass in the background of photo #2?
