I can't figure out when this stove was made......can't find a darn thing online about it.
On Top front door it reads No. 218 Enterprise Burnside
on the bottom ash trap door it reads P. & B. MFG Co Nashville Tenn.
need some info, I just restored this beauty

My guess is the 1930s. I like the no nonsense approach of the design. The latch on the ash door which should be tighter than the usual style on that kind of stove. The air control design which will surely give good control and if that door lifts up to allow shaking down through it, it will have less tendency to distribute dust. Try closing a dollar bill in the door and see if it holds it tight. You might consider lining the fire pot for a better moderate burn.

Nice and snug.....it is a very simple design. The entire joints on the bottom has been furnace sement. Good for 2000 degree rated and everything fits snug. I don't plan on burning any time soon. Only if I need it.
