Cast Iron Stove

Made by Isaiah and John Townsend

Albany, New York

c.1833-1834

George Clarke (1768-1835) purchased this stove on April 9, 1834, for $264.36. The previous summer he paid several craftsmen at the Townsend firm to carve the casting patterns, making this a truly unique stove.  On a bill from Townsend, Clarke referred to this piece as “My stove in the hall.”
