Description No. 10 RAMPART coal-burning, cast iron, pot-bellied stove (A) and a spiral wire ring lifter (B)
This squat, grey-coloured stove has a single cooking ring. The front two feet of the stove are decorated, with patterns cast into the metal. In contrast, the back two feet are merely functional, likely because they would be mostly hidden from view. The base of the stove is the widest part, and includes a maker's mark for "Wm. BUCK, BRANTFORD, ONTARIO." The main body of the stove has fluted sides and a circular door in the upper half. Although it widens towards the middle, the body of the stove tapers again to meet up with the flat shelf on the top. There is a hole in the top for a pipe (no longer extant), and a groove to fit the spiral lifter. By using the lifter, a circular lid can be removed from the top of the stove, revealing the main cavity.
Makers mark Cast with "Wm. BUCK, BRANTFORD, ONTARIO."
Provenance Manufactured by William Buck of Brantford, Ontario. This company was established in 1858 and in 1894 was still listed as a stove manufacturer.

Used for many years as a heater at Hugh and Madalene Gordon's Sauble Beach, Bruce County cottage.
