Parlor stove

PostBy: Coal stove rookie On: Sun Mar 16, 2014 9:47 am

I recently rescued an antique mountain oak parlor stove. I would like to put it to use but I know absolutely nothing about this stove or it's operation. Is there anyone who offers restoration and or set up services in the Lebanon, Schuylkill or Lancaster county area of Pennsylvania? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know any stove restorers in your area but it looks as though this make of stove has some potential. A shot of the back of the stove and of the grate system would help determine its value.

This is a large, powerful heater. You have a worthwhile stove there. It is rather modern as Parlor Stoves go as this particular model was made around 1919 or so.
The best part about it is that you have a double heater. The duct in the very top/rear of the stove is for the exit of hot air. The other opening with the elbow on the back is where the smoke comes out and is hooked up to the chimney.

Here are photos of the grate system and the flue(s), as well as a few others. I had to take it apart to get it home, so pictures are easier of the inside and superstructure. Another question I had was does this burn both coal and wood?

It has a lined fire pot and a duplex grate. Should work very well for coal. Some wood for spring and fall.

Is the sheet metal barrel solid?

Yes the barrel is solid.
What size coal would this burn?

You would use either stove coal or nut coal. Either one will work fine. I prefer the larger sized stove coal. You will have to see which one you like better.

I'm not sure that the "glass" is correct in the three sight windows on the middle door. It feels almost like a plastic product. I don't know the correct terminology for it or where to get it. I'm guessing the only way to find out if it is the right stuff would be to put some heat to it.
