1913 ~ Cole’s Air Tight Wood Heater

Posts about Cole’s Hot Blast stoves have been popular with the readers of this blog over the years.  Most of them either inherited a stove or obtained one through a purchase of used vintage goods.

The stoves were a marvel of function and efficiency.  They were constructed to live for decades if not generations.

The Daily Missoulian carried a Missoula Mercantile Company advertisement for the stoves in the 17 Nov 1913 issue of the newspaper.  You could buy them equipped from the basic models thru models with nickel trim and “patent planished bodies”

Do you have one of these gems in your home today?  If so, you are a member of a small but fervent group of Hot Blast stove lovers.  Click to enlarge.
