Bright Diamond Antique Coal Stove
"Globe'" style coal stoves were very popular during the late 1870's and 1880's. A cylinder in the center of the stove is filled with coal. Soon after starting a fire, the whole column glows red for illuminating the with the many eisenglass windows surrounding all sides of the stove, except the rear. When burning coal, this stove only needs to be stoked every 12 hours or so and many homeowners find themselves that one ton of anthracite will last the whole winter. You can even burn wood in this stove too. These stoves were especially widespread through the northeastern United States and Canada.
