Antique Stove for Home Heating Manufactured C. 1880 - 1940
Parlor and Box Stoves & Franklin Fireplace Stoves


Invented by Ben Franklin, one of America's most important and innovative forefather's, this free-standing fireplace holds a special place in American history. The Pennsylvania Fireplace is an 8-plated cast iron fireplace that can be placed in any room where a built-in fireplace is unavailable.

The Pennsylvania Fireplace, also known as The Franklin Style Stove offers a cleaner, more efficient alternative to the traditional fireplace while still offering the timeless appeal and charm and full view of a burning fire. Later improvements to Franklin's original design included the addition of hinged or removable doors and decorated guards to prevent coal and ash from spilling onto the floor.

The parlor stove was the canvas on which great iron artists of the nineteenth century cast their many masterpieces. The large rectangular heaters take center stage in any living room, dining room or parlor by virtue of both their high quality iron and beautiful designs. Ornate scenes cast on the sides and face of the stove depicts angelic cherubs, mythological figures, elaborate floral designs and animal motifs. The detail, beauty and clarity of design are matched only by the conveniences of an airtight, overnight burn; large firebox; and easy side and top loading doors.

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 and other patriotic images. They were first seen during the Revolutionary war where they were particularly valued due to their portability and efficient burn.  Victorian models often featured designs which featured birds, flowers, and scrollwork.
