I have a potbelly stove, but mine is a electric heater. The light and heater is in the belly of the stove. When the light is on it looks like a fire is in the stove. It has two controls one for the light and one for the heater. It measures 26 inches tall 14 inches wide and 15 inches in depth. It weights about 80 pounds. It says BD&CO. on the handle but I don't know if that is the right part for it. And inside the bottom door it has the numbers 84115-7. That is all the information I have on it. I would like to know if this used to be a wood and coal stove or someone put the light and heater in it. The parts for the light and heater do not look new. It looks like the parts were made for it. If anyone knows anything about it will help me put a price one it. Thanks

    We have a very similar one even has the exhaust pipe vent, we bought it at a yard sale about 15 years ago for $25 but hve no idea what it would be worth. It works great. It is the old coil type heat element we think it is form the 50's or 60's
