    I don't know anything about it but it sure made me smile. A real piece of industrial art.

    Well I've piece together a very small amount of information. Mainly from a paper ad for the stove in a hardware catalogue from 1896. The page from the catalogue is being sold on Ebay. The guys from spirit burner.com are about as mystified as myself. I have not tried the griswold blog yet. I posted it on Craigslist to see what kind of interest there is in it. To be totally honest I'm more then a little concerned about firing this thing up, although the valves are in great condition. Overall, I just don't know what to do with it.

    I'd fire it up in a second. Sounds like you know the make. What other info were you looking for?
