Round Oak stoves were produced by the Estate PD Beckwith, Inc. in Dowagaic, MI. Patents dates on the rear of the stove run through 1909. Among the most best stoves ever manufactured, the Round Oak #41 Baseburner Stove provides users with an unrivaled capacity. Round Oak invites doubters to remove a plate to see “EXTRA CAPACITY OF CIRCULATING FLUE.” The face of Round Oak’s popular, but fictional, Dow-Ah Jack sits atop the stove in relief and answers cynics with a stoic, unshakable confidence. The subdued patina on the nickeling represents an example of the unique characteristics and traits that can only be achieved with time. It is impossible to replicate with authenticity the type of century-old finish seen on this stove. A nickel finial dome hide the top loading chute. When the decorative top pieces are pushed to the side, a lever opens mechanically the lid for the coal chute, hands-free. It is features like this that demonstrate a superior degree of thoughtfulness and ingenuity in engineering. A cast iron chute deposits coals cleanly into a firebrick-lined, cast iron pot. If wood is your preference, the chute can be removed and the stove loaded from the front or from the side.

Conversion to gas, propane or electric is available too. The Round Oak name is boldly displayed across the front of the stove’s firepot area on a nickel-plated plaque. The Round Oak #41 Baseburner Stove includes a small cook lid on the rear of the stove. Primary and secondary draft controls allow users to adjust the antique stove’s performance to achieve optimum heat output without sacrificing comfort or ambiance. This impressive stove made its way to the Good Time Stove Co. from its home in Alaska.
