PLEASE EMAIL/PHONE FOR A PRICE. Originally patented in 1742 by Benjamin Franklin, the Regency enjoys a pedigree unmatched by any other stove.(Available in med and large size at extra cost.) It was designed at a time when America was still a British Colony and its proportions were undoubtedly influenced by Franklin's extended visits to Georgian London. With the doors open and a fire burning, the Regency's large firebox produces the atmosphere of a traditional open fireplace. When closed, the airflow is controlled, the fire burns longer and the handsome Georgian door panels are fully exposed.
