FAQ Subject: Historical information on Atlanta Stove Works Company
I have been searching endlessly for any info on the Atlanta Stove Works Company i could find, to no avail might i add! Until YOU!!!
I am looking for historical information on the company. We rescued a beautiful old wood burning "Franklin " stove from the doom of a garbage truck about two months ago and want to know how old this is. It's in great shape and the elderly women was pleased we wanted it. So much so, she stood guard over it until we could find someone to help us lift it into our vehicle. It is model #26 - pat.#208891-with an unidentified number 2757. So far, the only thing i did find out from the U.S. patent office was that it lands somewhere about 1878 for manufacture. Anything you can tell me would be appreciated. Thank you for your consideration.
Well, I hate to rain on your parade, but Atlanta Stove Works, went out of business, was revived as Birmingham Stove and Range, went broke, remainder was sold to Martin Industries who discontinued all wood fired products and sold off all related machines and materials. I am trying to reconstruct some history, but without much luck.
I will keep you posted. Meanwhile, enjoy your treasure.
