Saw this in a blacksmith shop in NC. How old do ya figure?

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:
add a few pipes to it and i'd say it looks like the coal boiler in my grandmothers house
It's a CL gem in the making.
As a probable antique- it actually could be. I'd buy it.
Dang AP next time you are in an old blacksmith shop take more pictures(not of stoves).
That's great! Thanks.
