I don't really even know it this burns coal, however I was just surfing the web and came across it. My house has open fireplaces which I often use, but after starring at this fireplace insert for a while, I suddenly thought it made a fireplace take on a modern, high tech quality -- almost like something too complicated to use -- far into the future. Maybe I enjoyed the series "Wild, Wild, West", too much. But like cell phones today, I can image the older folks asking the kids how to run it!!

I know the photo is from a sales website -- please pardon me if I'm breaking rules, but it ain't mine, nor related in anyway.

That is a Baltimore Heater. And yes they are very sophisticated. They are also very efficient. They are designed to fit in a fire place opening. They are base burners and have the option of running ducts to send hot air to upstairs rooms. See link below. Fellow Forum member, Nortcan has restored a Baltimore Heater to use in his home.

Hi realsquare.
If the stove is in good condition, it's a real bargain and if I didn't have one I would make you a hard competition to get it :D .Honestly, these stoves are hard to find in good condition cause they are heavy and often ""casted"" inside a masonery fireplace so parts are often broken when removed from the foyer. Plus there are not a ton of them compared to other regular antique stoves. I like the grates in that model. The more infos and photos ( near the stove to see as much details as possible..), the best will be your decision and also then we can give you better infos.
For the rest William resumed it perfectly. Now I just tried mine a few times with wood only (small wood and eco-logs, charcoal) cause not cold enough during day time but the stove seems to be able to make serious heat.
Good luck.
