Gas appliances were introduced to British homes in the late-19th century. They were very expensive, however, and only the wealthy could afford to buy them. As a result, small wood burning stoves, such as this Harry Hunt-designed office heater, remained popular. Wood-burning stoves did not need much maintenance, and as this advertising flyer states, they could be left unattended for several hours. Hunt’s stoves were beautifully designed and intricately decorated.

This is the reverse of the advertisement.
