This Mid-Century Modern, Eames-era Red Freestanding Cone Fireplace is a Montgomery Wards Pacesetter circa 1970 and is extremely rare. It is in the style of Preway and Malm. With a bright red conical shape and glowing logs, this Retro Vintage fireplace is perfect for an apartment or home looking for that iconic fireplace!     The fireplace is 39.5" High; 30" wide x 30" deep and vented with 8" diameter welded seam steel collar.  Cast-iron damper. 18-ga. seel cone, porcelain enameled. Concave base for easy ash removal. May need (2) 23-in. lengths of 8-in smoke pipe (reach 8-ft. ceiling, with reducer); one-piece firescreen. All of the surfaces of the cone shaped body and the stovepipe are coated in Cherry Red high gloss, fired-on porcelain enamel.  The finish on the fireplace is in good condition. The firebox floor has a thick layer of refractory cement that protects the metal below (needs replacing) and it has a heat shield in the back of the firebox to protect the main body, which may need replacing.   Many people are finding the new vent-free gas or gel ethanol fuel logs sets to be very attractive because they don't require connection to a chimney so you can save on installation cost but still have a "real fire" look and feel. These fireplaces can be used with wood, gas, gel or electric log sets. (Converting this fireplace into a wood burning stove is not recommended.) The removable spark screen has some surface rust, which could be wire-brushed.   The back does have chipping along the seam. These rare awesome beautiful fireplaces are tough and easy to care for once they are installed.   History: Preway was one of the top quality makers of freestanding fireplaces and they made them heavy duty but they were also designed with a port in the firebox floor to install a gas line through so you can use a gas log. This port also allows the cord of an electric log set to pass through. Shown is a gorgeous yellow Montgomery Wards Pacesetter Freestanding Cone Fireplace/ Stove redone in yellow.  These stoves have a value of $1500 when redone!
