I can not tell if this has been restored or not, but the finishes look to be original, and the unit seems to be complete.
The porcelain only has a couple small chips. The nickel plating that I just polished out is in great condition and now shines bright.
It would be great to obtain more information about this unit, as I have found very little through my research.
Hi artguy and welcome to the forum.
You could start a new thread on: Hand Fired Coal Stoves and get many answers to your questions and lot of comments.
BTW you got a very nice stove. Many parts of it are same as on my Golden Bride.
