This intriguing oddity appeared on ebay recently:
I am wondering if in fact this piece is complete as it is, and was used to heat the metal plate. Possibly for sad irons to sit on? But one would think irons of this sort had long since gone out of use.
Per the auction information: dimensions are 12 1/2″ Long x 9 1/4″ Wide x 4 3/4″ Tall
This is an earlier style stove from the Waterman manufacture with its bandy legs, and burners along side the oven.
Yet another model unknown to me until today.
This one made it fairly far from New York – is offered for sale in Cleveland, Ohio.

Newly listed on ebay is this two burner gas camp stove on metal stand. Per the auction listing, it “measures 23 inches across x 15 inches in depth (counting the fittings) x 21 inches in height.”

Entirely by accident I stumbled upon a mention of a patent issued to Henry Waterman of Brooklyn, New York. It dates from the 1888 and is for the design of a coal burning stove.
It would seem that this would have to be Henry, Sr. rather than the proprietor of the stove company which was active some 40-50 years later.

This Waterman stove, a model unknown to me, turned up on ebay recently in the unlikely category of cast iron cookware. Here is a link to the auction.
The side-by-side configuration probably makes it one of their earlier products.
The photos aren’t great but you get the idea.
Happened to have noticed
two three! Waterman stoves on ebay lately.
The first is a 3 burner model offered at $399 – you can view it here. Too much $ IMHO
Second is a model previously unknown to me – with its bandy legs and basic design, I believe it to be one of Waterman’s earlier offerings. Not sure what the center burner is for??? This could make a great outdoor or camp stove! Priced reasonably at $70 See it here on ebay.com
The third can be found here on ebay
It looks to be in decent shape and is very representative of the Waterman product… The auction lists it as 3016-T…am thinking that is a serial #, not model #
We have been battling a clump of knotweed on our property for years. This invasive plant is tough to kill, and is easily spread by pieces of plant tissue which can remain alive even under tough conditions.
Here in New Hampshire there is a no-cut approach to containing the plant. You will see its dense green growth along the sides of many roads.
The photos below show some plants we had pulled up over 2 weeks ago which have been sitting on the barn during warm, dry weather. Without water, the stems still are quite green and still have plenty of water in them. The roots show new sprouts despite the complete absence of moisture.
Looks like it could take a month or more before these stems and roots can safely go in the compost pile.
Thanks for emailing. I will be back in touch as soon as I can.
