    This appears to be a light weight ( about 35 lbs.) wood stove found in an attic in storage of an older house (1920 circa.) What baffles me is that it is so light, made of sheet metal. It has a tub inside where the wood is burnt. Has a standard exhaust pipe fitting on top and several vents to regulate air intake. The only inscriptions are Wehrle Newark Ohio . Has 4 removable cast iron feet cast with the word Hotspur.

      If I am correct, this is a top load stove, not fire brick lined and the only clean out is where your hand is in picture four. If that is correct they do radiate lots of heat. The bottom also burns through and you have red hot embers under it and blowing around the house.
