Antique Box Stoves - Victorian Charm & Historic Authenticity

Box stoves are small stoves valued for their compact design and efficient burn. They come in three sizes with varying degrees of decoration. Early box stoves feature a Federal motif depicting stripes, stripes and other patriotic images. They were first seen during the Revolutionary war where they were particularly valued because they were very portable, their small size and efficient burn. More Victorian ones like the one that we are looking at here, which is made by the Ransom & Rathbone Company in Albany, NY, have floral designs featuring birds and scrollwork and what not. And they were often placed in bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, and other areas the people often occupied. More recent box stoves come in modern styles in their square and simple design. All box stoves load from the side and are based on a six-plate design meaning that there are four pieces that construct the sides and two on the top and bottom that makes six. This lip extends to prevent any ash from rolling out into your room. As you can see it loads from the side and has a small clean out area in front.
