I suppose the purpose of the upper part is to function like a soemüür to heat the room. So we've got soemüürid, pliidid, ahjud, but what do you call the whole unit like this? I've tried various terms in Google Image search, but none of my terms include images of this style of stove.
I´ve tried various terms too, like "kütte- ja küpsetusahi", and the closest design I've found is this:
They call that "rootsi ahi", or even "rootslane".
But it seems they´re all made of brick, so I'm not sure it answers your question.
It seems like many of those sites might be translated from some other language. Like this one: Kuidas voldida Rootsi kütte- ja pliit (where the URL itself is in English: "how-to-fold-a-swedish-heating-and-cooking-stove").
Anyway a lot of the sites that use that term have "et" in the URL which usually means it's an Estonian version of a website that is otherwise in another language, often machine-translated. So it might be "rootsi ahi", or that might be a just poor translation from some other language? Just because the site is a translation doesn't necessarily mean they aren't actually called "rootsi ahi" in Estonian, I'm just not as confident about it when I see that kind of translated page. And yeah, they do all seem to be made of brick.
Anyway, thank you for looking and posting! It's certainly quite close to what I was looking for, closer than what I'd found.
By the way, before you spend (more) time looking everywhere, it seems that stuff in my second set of photos is called krohvimatid.
