Anyone Able To ID This Parlor Stove?

Just curious - Can anyone ID the cast parlor stove in this old photo?

It's pretty nice - looks like it might be a base burner?

My guess is a Germer, or one of the many beautiful Andes stoves......the kind dreams are made of! :)

It just occurred to me that they probably passed the time talking to each other. Wow how weird is that.

I like the hearth board that's under it. Doesn't stick out to trip over.

No relation to myself - just a picture I found on line - maybe Shorpy.com?

Check Shorpy out if you never have see it. It's an antique photo website where people post their antique and vintage photos and earlier (Calotypes, etc.). I particularly like the Detroit Picture Co street scenes from the turn of the 20th Century. Check out the San Francisco earthquake photos - incredible!.

By looking at the picture, I don't think the lady of the house would appreciate someone telling her how large her hearth board needs to be.
I don't think she put up with too much crap from anybody.

In those days regulations weren't required...if you had no "common sense" you likely were eliminated from the "Gene Pool"...then the problem was gone. :P

Are you trying to tell me, there was an era, where people were allowed to have
common sense"?

That's why the use of the word, "Common".

These days, it should more accurately be called, "Uncommon sense" !!!!!!! :x

I'll agree to that Paul. "Uncommon" sense is very rare these days.

McGiever that was hilarious. I'd imagine telling stories or reading the good book or maybe a violin, piano or guitar went a long way back then. piano's weren't as common but people who had them didn't use them as decoration. They used to sit around and sing songs.
