Is something written on that name plate in front, or on a plate on the back?
I don't know what it is, but I like it.
It has a vintage parlor stove look to it...
Seller wrote back. It was made by Comforter wood works. Not familiar with them.
Nice piece to look at if cleaned up..but I doubt a serious burner..no glass either.
Found an older thread - might be useful...
and here's another on ebay-
Do you know if it comes with coal grates?
Looking for a stove for my pole barn. Yes I was hoping for something with glass.
Nice pics on the ebay link!
I would have put this in the classic forum but I thought it was older than 1969
You guys beat me to it - A comforter, circa 1979-82 or so.
I think it took 7" pipe, which might be a pain if you have to install an insulated chimney - check it out.
Otherwise, 200 seems like a decent price - it is a good stove.
Trivia - the company which put the stove out was part of a Christian Commune of sorts called the Abundant Life Farm.
There is a store today of the same name - which probably was tied in because their logo is the same as I remember (and you might see similar birds on the stove design)....
The enclosed pic of the stove label has the Abundant Life name on it......
I started a Wiki Entry...will see if I have any other material.
Interesting. On one of the ebay pics I saw a Christian fish symbol on the bottom corner of one of the end shots. Made me wonder.
