Measure the dimensions of the stove. Carolina Pride stoves are small and narrow compared to some of the larger models, and they measure approximately 2 feet across and approximately 3 feet high, not counting the pipe extending from the top. The body of the stove is an oval shape.
Glascock Stove and Manufacturing Company began in Greenville, North Carolina, in 1873. This company made a variety of wood stoves and heaters until the 1960s, when the foundry closed. The Carolina Pride heater was one model of small wood-fired heaters that the company produced. The Carolina Pride model came in two model numbers: 418 and 420. Both were made of sheet iron and were black with a nickel finish, according to the Glascock Stove Historian website.
Examine the feet of the stove. The Carolina Pride models have feet that extend approximately 6 inches from the ground and join to a piece of iron on the bottom of the stove. The legs curve outward at the top before tapering in and ending in a clawed foot. The feet of the stove, like its fittings on the door and handle, should be a nickel gray.
Examine the pattern on the door of the stove. The outside of the door on a Carolina Pride heater has a decorative pattern that resembles a window pane, with two rows and four columns resulting in eight "panes" where the black of the iron door shows through.
Examine the top panel of the stove. The top of a Carolina Pride stove is curved like the body of the stove, only larger. A decorative nickel cap with three holes covers the top panel.
Look for the name. Glascock stoves list the company name as well as the model number and name somewhere on the stove. This usually appears on the door.
