This mid-nineteenth-century cast iron parlor stove embraces aspects of Neoclassical styling with its lyre-shaped hot air chambers above the fire-box; the delicate, freestanding, open-work anthemion finials; and elaborate scrolled-leaf patterns seen in the casting. The stove is marked by Peter Low, a stove factory in Troy, New York, in operation between 1830 and 1849. This example, dated between 1840 and 1844, is entirely original.
