American Cast Iron Parlor Stove, 19th Century
This most elaborate four column cast iron stove is attributed to “James Wager Troy NY 1840-43″. The Albany Institute of Art has a large collection of these Ornate parlor stoves that were made in the Albany area. Tammis Groft former curator at the Albany Institute in her book called “Cast with Style” pictures many elaborate examples, & one most similar to this one by Wager. Stove bodies usually mirrored the taste of the period in furnishings and architecture. The metal-plate sides, fronts and tops of the simplest boxes of the 1830’s are stamped with neoclassic motifs of the Empire style. Some parlor stoves made in that decade for wealthy clients reflect the rage in that time for Greek Revival architecture. Whether placed in a period interior, or as a focal point of a room, this cast iron stove will be a treat to look at. There is a small almost triangular piece of iron missing under the left round circle near the base. Wear consistent with age and use. X W 32 in. X D 22 in. H 147.32 cm x W 81.28 cm x D 55.88 cm.
