Taber's patented stove "is intended to be used with anthracite as fuel, but other kinds may be burnt in it. The most convenient form is rectangular, the plates being, in general, of cast iron, and put together in the usual manner. The fuel is contained in a grate with front and bottom bars, such as are commonly employed in open fire places, and frequently in close stoves, there being a door in front by which the grate may be enclosed and another above it for replenishing the fire. The receptacles for the irons to be heated are at each side of the fire and consist of small compartments like ovens, which are closed by doors that slide up and down..." (Patent Number 231)
