I took the stove apart so I could give it a final cleaning before using it as a decoration for our basement den. This also makes it easier to move. Made of solid cast iron it's very heavy!
From the embossed letters and numbers:
From memories of my childhood in Brooklyn, we used it to burn coal. It probably also burns wood. Whenever we moved I made sure to take the stove with me. It looks like a work of art.
The special black paint I used on it decades ago is still holding up, no rust, only dust!
I love the flower decoration on each corner and the trim design along the bottom ridge.

All the parts easily move and fit, just like new!
