In years past, these stoves were used to heat large spaces. This model is made of resin, but looks just like the original cast iron versions. It is 1/12 scale, which is the most common scale for dollhouses and dollhouse miniatures. It means that if an object is 12 inches in real life, it is sized down to a one inch as a miniature. It measures 2-1/2" W x 5-1/2" H x 1-7/8" D.
