Description

This chamber in the Mercer Museum of Doylestown, PA contains a wide assortment of cast-iron stove plates. These plates were used by the Pennsylvania Dutch in the construction of "five-plate stoves": five plates were arranged into a cube, with the open side flush against an opening in the kitchen fireplace. These stove plates often featured intricate cast reliefs, which helped inspire some of the designs in Henry Chapman Mercer's decorative tiles.
