Wow! That is awesome! Amazing looking stove! How much did you pay for it, just curious. It looks like Jules Verne designed it!!!

You have a, "Globe'" style coal stove there. They were very popular during the late 1870's and 1880's. It is a base burner? It is a neat find and it will crank out the heat for you. Do you have all of the trim pieces for it? I will take a look around and see if I can't find some more pictures of these for you to look at. These stoves should be quite efficient.
You did a lot better than a second hand Harman there buddy! Can we see some more detailed photos?

Here are two different Globe style stoves hooked up and burning. One of them has what is called a,"piggy back," addition for cooking on it.

I have the trim ring for the top. Do not know if I am going to keep or sell. I have it almost fully restored. It needs mica in a few places. New door knobs. The old ones are a little deteriorated and do not stay threaded on. Going to try to find some nickel knobs this weekend. Do not know if nickel would look better or black. May get both to see what looks better.Any one interested in purchasing give me a shout. Think I am going to polish the stove this weekend. She will look really nice then.

Yes. When I lived in Bridgewater Nova Scotia in the late 1970's, a friend of mine used to heat his house with one of these. There was a cylinder in the centre that you filled with coal, then started a fire. Soon the whole column would glow red for house, hence the eisenglass full surround. He had to stoke it only every 12 hours when he used it and a ton of anthracite lasted the winter. Sometimes he would burn wood in it too.

Enjoy it, I did.

Cheers
