Portway Tortoise No.2 Antique Vintage Cast Iron Stove Fireplace Wood Coal Burner

Wonderful rare Victorian antique wood burning stove by C Portway of Halstead in Essex.
This is the no.2 size and comes with the usually lost tray.
Portways are still made today but this one I believe dates late 1800's to early 1900's.
These tortoise models were named as such because of their slow efficient burning of fuel. It is in very good condition and ready to be used if wanted for that purpose.
