Erie Antiques, Eriez Stove (pic)


I like to post antiques I find in Erie or are related to Erie. This was passed down in the family. It is an Eriez gas stove that has been altered to simulate a fire inside. It has a plug that lights a bulb that flickers. I removed that bulb and burned wide,squatty candles inside. It worked out well so I'll be removing the cord, also. I think it is perfect since we only have an ornamental fireplace. I tried to find information about Eriez but it seems there is only an Eriez Magnetics and I don't think it is the same company. I think I read somewhere a while back that the Eriez that made these stoves were somehow related to Griswold. I'd appreciate any comments to whether that is true.

The Louis Marx toy company bought three West 12th St buildings which belonged to the Eriez Stove and MFG Co in 1936. They became Marx buildings A, B and C.

I also found an antique stove in my attic that has the name ERIEZ on it. I am looking for any information out there, to tell me what is worth.

Please email me your pictures so I can post them. I'd like to see what other Eriez stoves look like. Send them to:

You can be anonymous or I can post your email addresses in case someone wants to buy your stoves.
