Interesting Mystery Base Burner Just Sold on eBay

PostBy: chrisbuick On: Fri May 31, 2013 9:40 pm

An early round Base Burner just sold for $330.00 on eBay. I wasn't the high bidder.

There was only one sideways picture, and little information in the description (cast iron - good condition).

I could only make out New York on the base.

Not sure if there's feet which went with it.

The seller didn't respond to my questions.

It was located in Upper Black Eddy, PA.

Anyone have any info on this stove?

This is called a, "Globe," heater. The reason for the name should be obvious since the stove is shaped like a globe. These were very popular during the late 1870's and early 1880's. Some were base burners, some were direct draft. The stove here appears to be a direct draft model. Yes they have a base and the top part is generally all nickel plated. Some of the caps are burnished brass. They are neat heaters as you have a 360 degree view of the fire. I have a picture of a good, restored one here for you to look at.

Thanks Bill for your response. Both Barnstable and Good Time have these types of stoves on their sites. It was the direct draft that confused me.

Here's a 1889 Moore's Delaware direct draft self feed global stove, similar to the one on eBay.

This is from their 1888-89 catalog.

There was an amazing array of stove designs during this period. I've been fortunate to acquire catalogs from Fuller & Warren, Stewart, Rathbone & Sard (Acorn) and Perry. They're mostly from the 1880's - 1912. I'm always looking for more catalogs from other major makers in the northeast.

According to Emery, some of these circular global heaters without feet were hung from the ceiling in sail lofts. He has a similar one in his collection.
