This May Well Be The Coolest Fireplace I've Ever Seen! You? It's A Scandinavian Morso Model 1125 And You Won't Easily Find Another Like It, But If You're As Smitten As I...You'll Find This One At The Green Shag Market! Status: Available!
This little green thing is HEAVY! Super Heavy! All cast iron. It's been making Frank drag his butt for a couple days now, but it's gonna be in the booth at "The Best Vintage Shop 2013" in St. Louis sometime Saturday afternoon (The Green Shag Market).
From what I've read and what the previous owner told me, these little buggers will heat a Large
square footage. Of course, those Danes know a thing or two about heating a home, me thinks. These
are twin chamber wood burners that utilize a second chamber above the main fuel burner to burn the
gas produced by the combustion of wood. Super efficiency is the name of the game...well, half the
game. The other half is that fantastic style and Adrian Peasall look. Those Danes. ::shakes head -
I spotted this on the list after it had been there for a while. Like always, I made arrangements to buy
it as soon as I possibly could. This almost always entails a late night pick up after work and this one
was no different. The seller gave me the address and copious amounts of directions but alas, I don't
do directions and I got the street wrong. Eventually, after much driving around and an eventual call
back to the seller I found the place. I expected to just pull up, exchange cash for product and be on
my way...but we got to talking about hot rods, hobbies and eventually how a blog could help him
with his side business of installing hardwood flooring and suddenly it was 12:45am! This happens
sometimes. And now it's been weighing down the back end of Frank, but that's about to change.
Stop by The Shag and check it out!
