Was my grandmothers, now mine for the past 15 years. Will have more rebuild data to follow. Here in sunny Fl. it will serve as a reminder to grand days gone by. The factory burned down on the late 1930s so information is non-existent. The "fire" is a flicker bulb.

Looks good ! The first reference I found to the Penn Grand model was in the Mt Penn Stove Works 1896 Catalog.

The catalog itself does not exist online but you can do a search for a library close to you who may have a copy.

Here is a link to the Sanitary and Heating publication issue that gives a brief description of the actual catalog. It is referenced on page 50.
