This style of stove is very common as many companies made them. This is a circulator or "cabinet," type heater as the stove is enclosed in an outer steel shell to create a convection current of air. Cold air comes in at the bottom and the warm air comes out of the top. These stoves were made basically for burning Bituminous coal, but; they will burn Anthracite just fine.
Your stove was made at the tail end of the parlor stove era during the late 1920's. Notice the stove looks like a Radio rather than a stove. Circulator type stoves such as this were sold to rural customers up until the 1950's. In fact they are still made in one form or another today, but; mainly for wood burning.

Thanks for the replies, I talked to the lady that was selling it and got more info. Said it used to be heating about a 1000sqft space. Little too small for me, and it doesn't top load :x Nice looking stove though!
