Little Winner Disassembled.
I have an old wood burning heater from my Grandmothers home. It says Franklin Gem over the mantle piece with the number 16 on the top. On the base of the stove it reads The Werhle Co. I was hoping to find the back piece from somewhere to restore it
Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated and
the sooner the better as she is getting up in years (94) and I want her to see it come back to it's original beauty. She "got her homework" as she says sitting by this stove.

I wrote to you a little over 2 years ago about my Wehrle stove, it is finally finished. Right now it's sitting on a dolly as we wait to finish the floor, but it will be getting hooked up and used on a regular basis.
When I got this stove the only metal work it needed was in the bottom of the case that holds the water tank. Since it would not be seen I fixed it and sealed it. I sanded all the dirt and grime off the stove and tried to re-black it. It didn't work, so then I found a small shop that did heat powder coating and took it to them. They did every single piece individually for me. I then found a place to do the nickel plating.
The only 2 pieces of the stove that are not original are the knob/handles on the side. If I am correct they should match the 2 on the front of the stove, have not been able to locate any. If I do come across some will have them replated and installed. Thank you again for your time and posting it on the web site!!

My main line of work is building websites and I have a tendency to receive a lot of email. I don't always get personal email answered in a rapid manner. Appreciate your understanding.
It has come to my attention, thanks to my friend Bill Johns, that there are usually Wehrle Stoves and parts for sale on Ebay.com. This might help many of you attempting to find out what your stove is worth.
Wehrle cabin stoves.
Daniel, you have to stop digging around in that barn. You are going to find life long projects out there. Philip
David, it never ceases to amaze me the wonderful stories and photos received for this website, but this takes the cake, haha. Hope someone can date the stove for you. Philip
Little Winner 552" Wehrle Wood Stove.
I have an old stove that says Golden Charms 584. The Wehrle Co Newark Ohio. With the numbers 82 18G Above it. I would like to know what year it was made in, if you know.
Hopefully someone can help Jeanette find the year her stove was made. Because of the enamel coating, my guess is during the 1930's.

I'm part of a team tasked with trying to date an archeological site in Ketchikan, Alaska. The attached pics are from the site. Would be great if you could give us any details on when this model was manufactured. We think the date range is 1920-1940ish.

I collect old white gas lanterns, heaters and stoves. I have had the good fortune to find three Wehrle cabin stoves over the last few years. I’m just north of Newark and am pleased to be able to hold onto a piece of Ohio history by restoring these stoves. Thanks for putting together the info about Wehrle. It’s important to remember our industrial roots.
