I have my base burner (BB)

Hi all. Yes I finally got it or here, I probably made too much jokes on that BB. So I'm making researches on the origins of that stove. It's a Golden Bride or a Penn Garnet. Penn was made by Finn Stove Works and Bride was made by Grander Stove Co. I did bought it from Bryant stove Me. They gave (sold) me a very old book: the Grander Stove Co. 1899 Bride, Ranges & Heaters. But the Golden Bride is not shown in it. On the plate below the front doors it is written Golden Bride and that plate fits perfectly with others parts around it??? but the numbers at the back are not the same series as on others parts. On the others parts, at the back I see Penn. Gar. and the numbers series corresponding to a same number series as on others parts ??? I will call Bryant to see that.

Anyway, the stove is in very good shape. It was dis-assembled ( I asked for photos of all that job), re-cemented between all the seams, painted, new micas (althought I'will have to replace somes). The fire pot, grates look in good shape. All cast iron, base burner, Double Heater and I saw a lever on the right side that we can pull or push. I think it's the option William has already described to be a lever for opening or closing a supplemental path for maximum gasses burning but not 100% sure. The stove look similar as the one in the subject /topic Penn Garnet...but mine is all Black.

I dont want a stove for antique collection but for heating. What I want to do is having the Vigilant (an other thing coming from the past, in the old book, Grander made Ranges named Vigilant) burning a low temps and the Golden?Penn? also burning very low. The Golden is a very small stove and it's perfect for what I want to do with it.

You know, Keepaeyeonit, I can send as much photos as you will be able to look at them lol. If someone is interested Bryant autorized me to show their photos when dis-ass. and re-assembling the stove showing all the job and internal parts. Maybe it could help someone to understand how these old stoves were ingeniously made.

Looks like that stove has enough levers and rods and things to push and pull to keep you happy. I bet it will look spectacular with a fire in it. Looking forward to your report on how it works.
