Im looking for information on a #214 Red Cross Oak, Pot Belly Stove. I have an old one and would like some information on it. What is the history of the stove? Is the company still around, and how can I contact them? Are there parts available? etc. Any help would be appreciated.

I just found a Red Cross Oak Leaf Potbelly stove. It has all the parts except perhaps the fancy skirt (if it did have one, looks like there are notches on the middle ring for a skirt). Finial is intact. I will be restoring this stove and offering it on Ebay and Craig's list out of Rochester listing. Should fetch at least $500 restored to museum quality.

I, too, have a Red Cross Oak stove, but mine is an RO-316, manufactured by the Co-operative Foundry in Rochester, NY in the late 19th century. The stove is a knockoff of the Round Oak stove of Dowagiac, MI. where they were manufactured by P.D. Beckwith. Round Oak was named for the fact that you had a door to the wood burning furnace of the stove large enough to insert a round oak firewood piece, meaning you didn't have to split the oak firewood to fit it into the stove furnace. I have attempted to find info on the Co-operative Foundry in Rochester but have had little success. If you know anyone that might have parts for this stove, I would appreciate it. I need the finial wings, handle for the primary draft, some other draft control pieces and one base ring and one footrest ring. Any help in finding any of these would be a big help. Hope I provided some answers to help you.
have a nice day, Marty

I have a small black 2 burner stove which I am
trying to find out what its worth. It is only 20
inches tall and 20 inches ln width. It has the name N.MAN.FORY COMPANY on the front of it. It is
so cute and a real conversation piece.
