    It looks like what's known as a 'parlor stove'. You could try doing a search under that name and see if you could find out the manufacturer. The two lids on top (hidden under the decorative grill) are useable for cooking, which is a nice feature. You'll need a lid lifter for them, though. Lehmens' catalog carries them.

    I had one identical to it years ago. I loved it. I burned both wood and coal in it. It would get very hot though so I never left it alone, and I made the door airtight with fiberglass ribbon and heat resistant gasket glue, so one can control the temperature better. Mine had chrome foot rests on it, and I used to heat water for tea on it in winter. It will heat a pretty good-sized space.

    Thanks for the links. It is almost exactly like this one.

    Exept the front doesn't open and it has round chrome knob under the front window that (i think, guess) controls airflow.

    I know that the owner had it repainted. I think its an older stove. Its in really good condition. and I only paid 125.00 for it! :dance:
    One of the websited had it listed for 500.00(new)

    I am a happy camper! :bouncy:
