Antique Victorian Parlor Stove Help Identifying

I am going to bid on this parlor stove but I was hoping someone could tell me maybe more about what time frame it comes from? Its cast iron with enamel over the front. Also do you think if I hooked up the pipe in the back I could safely use it?





Thanks!

gosh...you gotta admit the French really knew their enamaling back in the day. Beautiful looking stove... Im not sure why its all open slots on the lower sections below the doors? how do you control the fire? :shock: either way... this thing is beautiful, are you planning on using it or simply displaying it?

Well primarily for display but if its safe t use the spot I have for it will have a hook up to vent through the pipe, and I would love to use it occasionally. Assuming I get it cheap enough

Thats an Old Godin for sure... here is an example unit you can compare it with ^^^

Its in Florida because that seller is an antique dealer specializing in old cast iron crap, she prolly picked it up for a song :lol:

I'm no expert in this WOOD burning fireplace. I have a bait pale that I can safely burn in if I put it in my fireplace. Are you buying this to look at? Can not give safety advise per photo, keep in mind, 1880 no problem, no OSHA, no Underwriters Laboratory, 2013 no coal in this unit...just my $.02. :|
