Treasure Chest Thursday, The Pot Bellied Stove
This pot bellied stove (with FAKE venting pipe, it's just for show folks!) belonged to David Halterman (1876-1965). He used it to warm one of his chicken houses on the family farm near Bergton, Rockingham County, Virginia.
Below in front is an old iron and a trivit to place that hot iron on. The iron had to be heated by placing it on a stove. There is also a handle to remove the stove lid on the top of this stove. The log slice is a remembrance of the tree that wanted to fall the wrong way, which, just happened to be, towards Man and Moi. I brought it in the house as a reminder to be careful out there with a chain saw and falling trees!
*David is my great-grandfather, I have previously posted about his wife, Ida Matilda Whitmer Halterman and her (?) snuff can.
