Very cool, Now to try to find the connection between these 2 compaines!
Do you have triangular ( 2X) grates in yours? In the book I have 1899, they name Bride but the book doesn't have the Golden Bride in it. Maybe they made it after the merge with Penn Garnet??? On an exhaustive list of the stove industry, there is the Grander name but not Finn Stove Works or anything about Penn Garnet...That list is: The Stove Industry in 1892.
" In 1892, to celebrate its 20Th anniversary, the National Association of Stove Manufacturers made an effort to identify all stove manufacturers in the United states, including all of its non-members and the many new firms, some located in areas quite remote from industry's old centres."
"What it discoveredwas a very considerable tunrover within the industry. 128 of 1874's 221 firms, which had cotributed 118,000 tons (46.4 percent) of production capacity at that time, had disappeared." .....
I continue to make researches on our's 2 BB. They may be 2 Sisters???
