    Have you ever seen this one?
    Apparently it isn't very common.
    Who made it ?
    Should I buy it ?

    I wouldn't buy it for heat, but if you are into collecting antiques and the price is low, then maybe.

    I would buy it for the right price but only if there was no cracks and deep pitting. just sanding, sealing, paint, etc. I would have no issues using it for heat if sized for the space.

    Looks like a sheet metal barrel stove with a clerestory top. I'd be concerned about it's integrity and leaking. Also, looks like the isinglass is missing, dented or damaged. It looks more like a novelty stove than something great for heat, but novelty can have value sometimes as an antique.
