Here is a neat item, an 1884 dated cast iron miniature stove that apparently was used in railroad cars for heat. It was trademarked the “NEW ECONOMIST” and was made by John Strong Perry’s Oriental and American Stove Works of Albany, New York. Beautifully made of cast iron, it has mica (isinglass) panels to be able to view the flames from the three oil wick burners with brass hardware. The fill tank has a neat oval cast iron lid on the side. Takes white oil or kerosene. The entire top of the stove rocks back to allow one to replace a wick or service the burners. I have had this lit and it works very well, warming up an entire room. Comes with new wicks and extra isinglass. Condition is superb, this stove appears to have been completely restored and is complete with all parts. Measures: 13 x 13 x 17 h. Weighs approximately 25 lbs.
