Esse Stove with electric fire
An Esse Autovector stove, made in the Esse factory at Bonnybridge in Scotland.
This Stove featured in the film ' Mrs Biggs'.
It is a great example of 1950's / 1960's design,and very well engineered.
The stove is made from cast iron, enameled in a brown luster enamel, which has a pronounced purple tint.
It is very unusual in that it has a small lift-out electric fire that was meant to be used if you didn't wish to light a real fire.
The electric fire , because of its poor guard, would no longer be allowed to be used as a working fire, but the main solid fuel stove is very serviceable and should give many years good service.
The stove is primarily designed to burn anthracite, but would burn modern smokeless fuels equally well.
The stove is fitted with an external grate riddling system, and also features a thermostatically controlled air inlet valve that allows you to set the room temperature to some extent. This seems to be in full working order and is a feature that many more modern stoves lack.
The steel mesh top to the stove lifts to allow top feeding of this stove. The stove is designed to be able to be run continuously for long periods, making it a practical main source of heating for a room.
