That's a Meridian ceramic stove. Still popular, they command a good price if in good condition, but are fragile to move.

I did notice the vertical crack in the base. Almost center.
 
I got my unique stove in the garage fired up today. It’s been a fun project!

I would be a bit apprehensive; too much glass.thst can break for my taste. Especially in a workshop.
Ceramic but still.

It’s not ceramic.. to each their own, I enjoy it. It’s from 1977 and had no broken glass when I got it, it’s probably ok.

It's stove.glass right?

Someone has been nicely careful with it for a 47 year old stove!
 
That cleaned up nicely. Have you tried cooking in it yet?

Looks like it would make a dandy terrarium in the summer.
 
Throw a couple wood pellet smoke tubes in there and use it as a smoker.

Looks like a fun project! That brown and gold color kills me, when I came across an old stove like that I had to paint it another color, I felt like I should be burning it with red shag carpet under it otherwise :)
It was black, I went with honey glow brown, I think it goes better with brass hardware.
Can’t really use it like a smoker, the smoke never comes in contact with food.
 
Not yet, the oven holds at 400 easily though, should do great!
That's cool. Is there any temperature regulation in the ovens other than fire size? If you can get it down to 350º, try out some bread. If it goes over 500º, put in a stone for some pizza!

Unfortunately fire size is the only way to control the temp. 350 was easy to keep though.
 
Looks like a Bullerjan copy. Definitely not an EPA certified stove.
