    I thought this was interesting?? There is no air control and I can't figure out the cylinder front. I am assuming it was some sort of coal stove but as I stated there is no under fire air. No I am not interested in the stove it just puzzled me.

    I like it, nice looking stove. It looks like the loop shaped handle on the ash lip might be an air control that may move sideways. I's also guess coal. - early Jotul?

    It's a beautiful piece but doesn't look like a very effective shape for coal to me.

    Think of this as a parlor stove. A small area heater that is good for heating tea water.

    Not a coal stove without a shaker grate and no secondary air. Looks like the air comes in at the base of the cylinder portion? I'm guessing the cylinder part is perhaps a water tank for heating water? Kinda neat anyway...

    fanman I think you might be right on with the cylinder because of the hole in the grate. I just thought it was an interesting antique stove

    that stove was worth alot more then $100 bucks (foolish people! LOL) I bet its long gone in like 5 seconds at that price?

    its a legit antique (made in Europe), bread oven and two top burners (one for warming, one for boiling), the combustion chamber is surly for chunked up wood. A great find for the lucky devil who got it!

    great guess from the member who said an early Yodul , but this is not a Yodul (this is the type of European Design Yodul based many of their models after though) .... this one is the real macoy hahaha...

    I don't know if I would pay more than scrap prices for that stove, I can't see too many uses for it for me. I still can't see how the air enters the firebox through the cylinder?? I just found the stove interesting and I had never seen one. good luck
