Baby Bear Fisher Stove

The “Bear series”

The Fisher “Bear Series” single door stoves have a six-inch flue and were named:

  • “Papa Bear”, having two air intakes, logs to 30”.
  • “Mama Bear”, having two air intakes, logs to 24”
  • “Baby Bear”, having one air intake, logs to 18”.

The “Fireplace Series” double door stoves have a 8 inch flue and were named the “Grandma Bear”, is 25 1/2″ across the top plate. And “Grandpa bear”, which measures 29 1/2″ across the top plate.

All stoves made to go into a hearth or fireplace were called  “Inserts“. They were later available with glass doors. Freestanding Pedestal type stoves were the “Honey Bear”, and the Mobile Home approved “Goldilocks”. The “Coal Bear” was the coal burning stove that featured reversible grates. The biggest model “XL” had two doors and a ten-inch flue which was capable of heating up to 3000 square feet.

The Fisher stoves fell out of favor, as stove technology improved, and the company mostly slowed production by the mid-eignties. A few isolated franchises remained, but no designs were ever produced which met the EPA standards in the US.
