The stove consists of 130 different size tiles, whose surface is painted with late 19th century sights of Rīga and Jūrmala: Rīga Castle and Victory Column, House of Blackheads and Roland's Statue, German-speaking City Theatre (now National Opera), Rīga Polytechnic School (now University of Latvia), the old railway bridge and other objects.
