    Hello! Brand new here. Was very lucky to find this very cool looking fireplace. Been trying to find it online and I’m thinking it’s a Malm but not quite sure. There is no nameplate or identifying marks that I can find. Hoping someone can help. Thank you!

    Malm would be my first guess, but it might be a Preway or maybe a Majestic?

    There were many made in the 70s and early 80s we run across them in use everyone in a while still.

    Same era as the lava lamp, table and speakers.

    I had something similar in my weld shop about 20 years ago , mine had a square base and slightly different opening I was able to place a piece of steel in the opening to restrict incoming air ( the enamel on mine was heat reactive so when temps starting getting too high it would turn darker . it came with a 6’ length of pipe in the same red enamel/ powder coat . I used to burn tons of stockade fencing that thing would have an angry brownish/purple color when it was raging ( I don’t think mine even had fire brick in the bottom ) I agree these were from late 60s70s and popular in ski chalet type settings

    Wow, I feel like I've been born into the wrong time period. Those things are awesome

    Look it over carefully for a mfg. tag. There should be one somewhere.

    My aunt & uncle had one of those in a 200 year old farmhouse in Phoenix, MD back on the early 70's. Didn't do too bad for heat for what it was.
