Object detail

8 1/2 x 18" (21.6 x 45.7cm)
Wolfe's patent intends "to provide very simple and cheap means whereby the exterior design of the laterally-projecting base of an ornamental stove can be easily, neatly, and quickly changed from a circular shape to an angular form, and from angular form to a circular shape, without making a new and different base-plate, and while one and the same permanent base-plate remains embodied in the stove."
