Description
An iron wood-burning stove used in the Hope Rosenwald School. The stove is in several distinct pieces: stove body, ash box, base, transition piece, lid, small top piece, three long pipes, one short pipe, stove pipe adapter, cirular pipe piece, two rods, and a box of six screws, five nuts, and a pin. The pieces are probably a combination of iron and tin, and the base is wood. A stamp into the ash box reads "HANKS STOVE & RANGE CO. / ROME / GA."
