Franklin Stoves – Antique Fireplaces

Manufactured c.1840 – 1940

Franklin stoves and fireplaces were invented by one of America’s most important and innovative forefather’s, Ben Franklin. These were freestanding, open-faced fireplaces that stood in front of the mantle. The Pennsylvania fireplace was an 8-plated cast iron Franklin stove. It could be placed in a room where a built in traditional fireplace was unavailable or undesirable.

The Franklin Style Stove offers a cleaner, more efficient alternative to the traditional fireplace while still offering the timeless appeal and charm and full view of a burning fire. Later improvements to the Ben Franklin stove included the addition of removable doors and decorated guards to prevent coal and ash from spilling onto the floor. The antique Franklin stove easily lends itself to a gas conversion or electric conversion. The faux logs and fire look authentic and cast heat.
