the stoves are sold in the US and certified for coal, they make two models, one for antracite and one for bitumous coal.

there's only about a dozen dealers in teh US for these stoves. After some digging it turns out the guy on ebay is a distributor, and these are a few years old, he's just liquidating them.

I'll try and make it out to the dealer this week for the pictures you asked for.

What caught my eye with the Esse stove was the fact that they state that it is Suitable for overnight burning. That should go without saying when purchasing a coal stove. The unit did not look like it was very well suited for burning anthracite. You can pretty much burn wood in anything, the same can't be said for anthracite. I would make sure I got something that burns coal very well and give up a little on the wood end. I think after you start burning both. YOU'LL STAY WITH COAL.
