Do you know if

Do you know if there is a special reason to have the upper barrel made smaller than the lower part?
On the last photo we can see the upper covection chamber around the top barrel.

Wowser,That stove is magnificent.I don't know where you are digging them up from but can I borrow your kucky shovel? I can't comment on the design but it would be interesting to know the internal flue path for sure. great stove!! Mike

Could it have been an experiment in desighn vrs. function?....back then the stove makers were always tryin to build a "better mousetrap" as they say to be competitive in the market place wich resulted in the sometimes ODD looking shapes of particular stoves .....back in the day the salesman needed a new product every yr. to get out and SELL$$$...unique desighns and something different was there PLAYING CARD.
I may be all wet, I am sure William will chime in with more information.

Thanks stovepipemike. I only digged in USA :D
The flue path is really interesting in that stove. I will take some time later to explain it in details. The convection path is also well made.

Yes, could be one good answer, but as you know they were very ingenious at that time so are there other reasons :?:

Yes maybe a sort of venturi effect :idea: . That can make sense. It seems to be to ""compress"" the gases before releasing them just like aventuri does.
These stoves are called Baltimore Heater. They were developped in Baltimore and it's one reason why they are reffered to that place.
Most of the stove is cast iron excepted the 2 base burner mode pipes and the rear shields. The stove should be around 425 pounds cause about the same as the Vig ll.
Yes almost new from 1874 :)
