    probably a date somewhere on there if you looked closely, but my guess would be 1850-1890

    Similar stoves were probably made before and after that date - come to think of it, this slightly resembles some "barracks" stoves which were used to heat military tents and barracks. Same type were used extensively during the WPA (depression era)......

    Note some similar lines:

    As a probable antique- it actually could be. I'd buy it.
