    I can’t seem to find any information on this stove, it was removed from my 2x great aunts home. It was gone through cleaned up, repainted, mica replaced, and nickel polished several years ago and has since been sitting in my dusty shop.

    I would just like to know April when it was made, how many Sq/ft it is capable of heating..

    Looks like a small coal laundry stove. Probably won't heat a huge area and if used for wood it will eat wood like crazy.

    Was pulled out of the front parlor/ living room. The laundry room stove went to my uncle as well but he still has it

    Ok so it was in a parlor. It is not a parlor stove though. A parlor stove would not have a removeable plate to put a pot on.

    Forgive my ignorance concerning stoves, what is the purpose of the grate and finial on most parlor stoves then? Also what would distinguish a coal from a wood burner?

    I beleive the grate is just for decoration. A coal stove will have a grate with air fed from underneath. A wood stove feeds air over or in front of the fire. This stove would burn lump coal because it doesn't have a deep belly or shaker

    Phillips & Buttorff Hardware (P&B Mfg).in Nashville had a foundry that made many cast iron items from pans to stoves. Their laundry stove's had a flat top and a larger 2 burner cover. Given their ultilitarian nature they rarely had any nickel on them. Often they were called P&B boilers or water heaters. A common one was model 288.

    The Enterprise Forester looks more like a small parlor stove complete with side footrests.

    Based upon the measurements given, how many sq foot would you say this will heat?

    Not sure about it's age, looks like turn of the century vintage. It's a smallish area heater. How large an area would depend entirely on insulation, ceiling height, outside temps, etc. but I would think it would heat an insulated 700-1000 sq ft space reasonably, though I wouldn't expect any long burn times. With coal maybe more? You'll get a more informed opinion by contacting one of the antique stove restoration sites. They may have a P&B catalog.
