Caboose Railroad wood / coal stove
- Source: eBay
This is a genuine wood/coal stove used in a railroad caboose. It was originally bolted to the floor (notice no legs) so it could not tip over. The top has a lip all the way around so pots would not slide off while the train was moving.T is various lettering on the stove: "Patented Sept 5, 1905" "ESTATE No 240" Smoke Consumer" "The Estate Stove Co Hamilton Ohio" "The ashbox is in one piece securing perfect fire control" Other patent dates shown are July 5 1892, Jany 23 1894, Oct 3 1894. T are highly visable "wings and wheels" embossed into the casting. The coal grate / shaker is inside as well as the ash box. The base is approx. 22x23, the top 18x21 and the height is 36". It weighs about 300 lbs. so I am requesting local pick up only, however, I have a pickup truck and could help with delivery in the San Diego area.
