Victorian Glenwood Wood Parlor – A powerful heater for wood
This is one of my favorite stoves I love the castings I love the convenience. Anybody who puts this beautiful Victorian parlor stove in their home will feel the artistry and iron. This is truly one of the finest works of functional art Glenwood every manufactured.
It has beautiful castings reach across four feet and run across all four sides of the stove and crawl over the dome of the stove culminating in an ornate urn adorning the top of the stove. On the front door of the stove, three cherubs run through field with a golden retriever playing and enjoying the warm spring day. A large nickel plate proudly bears the Glenwood name.
This stove is designed to heat approximately 4 rooms and to maintain a fire for ten to twelve hours. With ease you can maintain a fire through the night. The loading area on the side of the stove is enormous and can easily accommodate an eighteen inch log. A smoke shelf is built into this door; it is designed to prevent the smoke escaping from the stove when reloading.
The Glenwood Wood Parlor stove is made entirely of cast iron with doors and draft openings tightly fitted and with every part carefully arranged for perfect convenience in wood burning. The firebox is unusually large, extending the entire inside length and depth of stove, the sides of which are protected by corrugated cast plates ensuring long service.
The feed door on the end is noticeably large and convenient for admitting large pieces of wood. The handsome curved front door may be removed when an open grate wood fire is desired. You will enjoying watching a crackling fire.
The ornamental top swings to one side allowing the entire main top beneath to be lift up, which is often convenient for dropping in logs of wood the full size of the stove.
Two lids in the mean top may be removed, allowing kettles to be quickly heated. The nickel foot rain and bowl urn are essential conveniences as well. The indirectly style has identically the same good points as the direct style, in addition it has an attractive cabinet base and divided back and bottom through which the heat must pass before reaching smoke pipe.
The back damper in the indirect style controls the draft so surely that a continuous wood fire may be run night and day with very little attention. Convenient clean out openings are provided at the back as illustrated. Constructed throughout of cast iron the Glenwood Wood Parlor will last for many years.
