Most of the stove is done oversea and some finition assembly (a small % to conform to the reglementations...) is done in USA so they can write Made in USA...Just an opinion and not an absolute one but I almost got a stove supposed to be Made in USA, but after lot of searches..., I found that the stove was made in china and had just some simple assembly done in Pa. Then I went for a real USA made, the Vigll.
Now I have a super good sleeping time with the 2 Antique: Made in USA :lol: , no china copies in the past , just the BEST.


I never thought of that but you are right. The last thing I need is a made in China knock off. Thanks, Lisa

One other thing to think about,if installing in a fireplace,you may need a back vented stove for the pipe to be installed into/under the damper.If only heating the small room,maybe even a stove that can burn wood for the occiational cooler night to take off the chill since the room is not a primary living space.

Sounds ideal. I no longer have my Mark I, but from experience I can tell you it will idle along at about 5,000 BTU output which should be good for a small room. Top end is probably 6 times that output, a little more if you REALLY push it.

Thanks for the input. That's one reason the Harman is so attractive to me. It's rear vented and I've run a Mark II for years. The Mark I should work perfectly. One of the reasons I'd consider putting a coal stove down there is because that room is under our bedrooms which are always a couple of degrees cooler then the rest of the house. I'm hoping for some residual heat through the ceiling to bring up the heat in those rooms. I know it won't be much but maybe it will just enough. We'll see. Thanks again, Lisa

I'm excited about the Mark I. I realize that it's probably a little big for that area but I think I can run it at idle most of the time and accomplish my goals - make DK's man cave livible and get a couple of degrees of residual heat for our upstairs bedrooms. Thanks for your thoughts, Lisa

Lisa, that's a Vermont Castings stove. Would probably list new for about $2,100 more or less even in it's day and it dosen't look that old or used much. Actually the $750 or so that he want's is probably a very decent price. I've never looked at their coal stoves or conversion kits so I can't speak as to how well it functions. I think there are a few people on this board that are runing the VC stoves (Viligant) and they can advise better. Good luck!

Not enameled, painted! Along with the stove pipe... Probably never fired in its current location (as DCRANE pointed out, everything is not right.) Possibly installed with intent to use but quickly became ornamental.

It IS a pretty stove, but, yaaaa, $700 seems 3 or 4 hundred too high.

Is a Vermont Castings Vigilant too big for you?

Hi Freddy,

Yes, that monster would roast us out. I am picking up the Mark I on Saturday. I was blessed to get the stove and then blessed again that's it's only in Maryland. I should be able to run it low enough not to roast us and get a few degrees of heat through the ceiling. Hopefully, it will all work out. Take care, Lisa

the more i hear what your looking for... the more im thinking a crane model 44 (god... everyones going to think my opinion is bias :lol: ) but its rear vent, small, works great to burn coal and can also burn wood (about any coal stove can burn wood, but a woodstove cannot burn coal). anyways... just a thought and this new member has one that just posted Crane Coal Cooker (it would be to funny if he lives near you :lol: )

Actually that stove and vent pipe are not painted, it's enameled. I've seen stoves just like that one.
