—Jordan L. Mott pyramid stove from 1835. Price $1,750.

Exceedingly rare and very early Mott pyramid stove patented on July 21, 1835 by Jordan L. Mott of New York City, NY.
This stove measures only 20 inches in height and is a few ounces short of 40 lbs; early stoves were in general smaller than later stoves. The size of a parlor stove was not determined yet in 1835; this stove used cheap Pennsylvania Anthracite as fuel.
Mott states in his patent in part, “the outside shall be fluted, ribbed, or grooved, so as to expose a larger surface to the motion of the external air, as this mode of forming them, will tend to prevent them being over heated, by its intended radiation.” Increasing the surface also prevented the cast iron from crcaking.
Mott also protected his invention to cast the parts so they interlock. Mott states in his patent that he intends to keep the parts of his stoves in place by, “rims or ledges, and corresponding grooves, or hollows, being cast upon their touching sides to keep them in their places...”
He made other claims in his patent but the two aforementioned ideas, the ribbed surface to increase heat transfer, and the rims or ledges and corresponding grooves are incorporated in the stove offered here for sale, read more>>

—Exceedingly rare, maybe the only one extant, CORONET Base Burner Stove. Sold!


This rare stove is called CORONET, and was manufactured by Thomas, Roberts, Stevenson, Co., in Philadelphia, PA, and is a very early base burner stove based on a patent issued in 1874. Base burner stoves from the 1870´s are basically none extant; the only images I could find were images on trade-cards or images out of sales-catalogs from the time.
This very rare and impossible to find base burner stove has ten doors with a total of 25 Mica windows and is a truly illuminated or radiant stove.
Approximately 145 year old, this stove is in surprisingly good condition and all complete and original, including the finial. The fine castings are crafted in the Eastlake style and are of superior quality. read more>>
