We have just purchased an older home, built in 1915. With it, we obtained what we think is an old parlor stove. The man we purchased the home from (70 yr old), was selling the house for his mother (in her 90's). He had no information about the stove only that his father had gotten it years back, & it was always around as far back as he could remember. I think the stove was used for coal, but am unsure.
You can see The writing on the top of the stove says:
PRIZE NO. 19
J.S & M PEAKHAM, UTICA, N.Y
The outside dimensions are:
The stove stands about 30" tall.
Its about 17" wide at bottom base/platform, from back to front. (The stove box from back to front is about 10" wide.)
It is about 25" long across the front base/platform. (The stove box across the front is about 19.1/2" wide)
The depth inside the stove box is:
16 to 18" long (from left to Right, inside)
8 1/2 " wide (from back to front, inside)
17 1/2" tall inside
There are two doors that slide open in the front, one to the left, the other to the right. One door that opens on the Right side. And on the top there are three handles. One large one that sits in the middle taller than the smaller ones that sit to each side of it. The center handle lifts off and comes off in a circle shape exposing the inside. Also the two handles on each side of this one lift up, more in a retangle shape, to which the center cirle one sits in the middle of. This can be done with the center one removed or still in place.
Our stove is in Very Good Condition. I have an attachment that shows several photoes I have taken of this stove. In a few of the pitcutres you can see the works written on the stove that say PRIZE NO. 19 J.S & M PEAKHAM, UTICA, N.Y Any information you could provide us on its history or making would be most appreciated. We love the shape and size of this little stove and the wonderful details that are in its cast iron shape that it has. We have been unsuccessful in being able to find out any information about this stove, the year it was made, its manufacture, or any other information about it. Any leads to further our knowledge would be most appreciated. Also I do have some pitcures of it that can be emailed, however I do not know how to attach them to this letter board. Thank you in advance for your help !!
