Hey thanks for the help with the pictures...I've been traveling and got back to the office and I'm getting caught up. The #12 looks nice but the heart shaped mica on the #40 is a great touch. Where did you find this #40...looks like it needs some TLC but I know someone who is capable of doing the job right! Thanks for the help with the pictures and keep in touch.

If you look closely, both stoves pictured above have the heart shaped window. As far a finding the other picture, I lucked out. The stove is currently sitting out in a pasture.

If you want this stove let me know. The individual that has it, restores and sells stoves. I don't know any details about the overall condition of the stove or how much he charges. Or if he will sell it unrestored. Most stove dealers won't sell an unrestored stove.

Nice find William! I saw that myself at our friends place. We need to stop him from raiding all our New England stoves and appropriating them to a secessionist state! :lol:

I just saw your post. actually i do have a Crawford #40 parlor stove that i am trying to sell. it has not been restored but it is in very favorable condition. i can send you some pics if you want. I am based in Northern NJ and looking for $995 on the stove. I am currently moving and looking to sell as it does not fit in my new house.

if you are interested let me know maybe something could be arranged.

Hopefully, the Gentleman asking for the stove will show back up. I'm sure that he would be interested. If not, there are (or should be) a lot of people here that would want one of the best base heaters ever made. And it is a good mid sized to large stove.

So William, it's looks very much like the Herald 12 at Gingercreek, is that a coincidence?

Allot of the New England stoves were designed alike. They knew when they had a good thing and would copy the design and just change the casting details a bit. I have a Star Herald 112 and while similar looking, it's allot smaller stove and the design is different. The Crawford #40 is a Base Burner with suspended firepot and the Herald 12 is an Oak stove.

So how does the Crawford #40 compare to the Glenwood 6 in physical size?
I had a Crawford wood burner that I heated my whole house with for several years, man what a lot of work!, got it from Barnstable, beautiful stove, expensive at the time its seemed, but had high resale value again when I was done with it.

The Crawford 40 differs in many respects to the Herald 10. The Herald 10 is a cylinder stove with an indirect back pipe versus the Crawford 40 which is a top of the line Base Heater.
The Crawford 40 has a twelve inch fire pot, but I don't know how deep it is. I think it is around 24 inches deep. It can probably hold around 50 pounds of coal. The Crawford has the internally suspended fire pot and a refractory brick liner as well. It is a full Base Heater with a large heat exchange area at the bottom and it is equipped with an internal check damper as well as adjustable secondary air inlets in the loading door.

The Crawford is a superb stove in every way. All of the Northeastern Foundries had their version of this design in some form or another.
