The Portway 2 Contemporary multifuel stove features a stylish modern design with an extra-large viewing window. Portway stoves are really simple to operate with a detachable magnetic handle that can open the door and adjust the air controls. There is a choice of two stove colours; charcoal or black, three leg heights, four door traceries and even enamelled doors - this is a highly versatile stove.
Portway stoves began in the early 1800's when the owner of an ironmongery store first saw an metal stove in North America. He drew inspiration from this and built his own stove to heat is store based in Halstead. Charles Portway's design proved to be so successful that Mr. Portway set up a small foundry manufacturing solid fuel stoves and did so right up till the 1980's without much alteration.
