Has anyone seen plans or decent photos or drawings of a ship's stove prior to the introduction of the Brodie stove in 1781?  I'd like to add it to my plank-on-frame Armed Virginia Sloop of 1768.  No Brodie stoves in 1768!  Any help appreciated.

Maybe too late for a useful reply, but get this report online. Excellent drawings of a stove recovered from this wreck site.

https://files.nc.gov/dncr-arch/PDF/Rose-Hill-Report.pdf and the image below from a different wreck.


I will probably reference this work in my book about the origin of the vessel Chaleur (1763-1768).
