    I can read the word special but there is another word above it. Can anyone identify this stove? Is it worth restoring?

      That is a Quad Special Parlor stove. Should be a number on it. Made in Columbus, Ohio. Does it have a fixed grate or a shaker grate? Be careful with it as you go forth, some of these in good condition go for thousands.

      Here is a refurbished example.

      I'm not sure on the fixed grate or shaker grate - what is the difference? I'll try and google that so I can answer it better...lol I'm still searching for the lids for the top but I have two huge buildings that are packed to the ceiling so there is still hope of finding them. thank you for all your help !

      It’s beautiful- I hope you will get it fixed up and post the results someday!

      Miksss a fixed grate is used on a wood stove while a shaker grate is used on a coal stove. You didn't show pictures of the sides so we can't tell if it is a shaker. Shakers have a place on the side where you put a handle and shake the grate so the embers fall into the ash pan. A good many of these Quads were converted to gas when natural gas became available.
