    A very tall cast-iron solid fuel burning stove crowned with stylised leaves and spear mounts above strapwork bands and acroterion style motifs on the chimney. The makers mark Baerums Verk, No.158 can be clearly seen on the front plate. In good working condition.
    Norwegian late 19th century.

    Notes: During the early 17th century iron ore was found in the areas now known as Kirkerud and Eineåsen in Bærum in Norway. The then King of Denmark and Norway, Christian IV, wanted his kingdom to be selfsufficient in iron production and in 1610 he granted a Paul Smelter the right to build, at his own expense, a foundry in the area. During it’s heyday, the ironworks known as Baerums Verk, produced everything from cannon balls, cannons, armoured plates, nails, iron parts, and bullets. Later such items as stoves, ovens, grave ornamentations, kitchen utensils, hardware and machine parts gradually became the mainstays of production.
