Smokey, are you planning to buy all antique stoves around and have a museum for them? Don't forget to have videos ( I mean stoves related vids) playing in the showroom! If so be prepared to get a lot of visitors, even from Canada :clap:
P/S I just hope not to see an ""insert"" in your showroom :lol:

Haha no but I do what to restore as many as I can and find them good homes. But I can't pass up the idea of possibly being able to buy a bride after seeing yours Pierre. It is just plain beautiful!

Thanks and good luck with the project, always good to have somes. Anyways, for the insert, if you find one, don't restore it, I will take it as is and give you a nice $25 cash, plus in US $$$. :oops:
If the Bride is a small one and if you need a small heat output, these stoves work very well. And if you need more heat, the Bride can warm you up easily. Hope it has the round Ransom outer grate. Once you have tried it, it's hard to forget it.

As far as the, "excellent," condition of your stove is concerned. Seeing is believing.

Hmm well excellent can be determined many different ways. For instance, I cringe when I hear the use of stove paint. Stove paint burns off always and it can hinder the wonderful details in the castings when many coats are applied. But like William said "seeing is believing" so let's see it :)

wilderness wrote:just redid same stove os the one photographed - i hate to say it but mine looks 10x nicer with all the nickel plated extras - someone painted over original pieces in photo'd stove - i dont know what its worth but im sure its worth a decent amount- all my numbers on the pieces are related to each other- stove was actually being used when i possesed it - have original mica but want to replace it new - does this diminish the value? any help would be helpful - new to the forum thanks vince


The bride may be shiny and 10x a looker, but can she keep you warm at night! An un proven bride is all show and no glow.

This reminds me of the 'mail order wives' from the 1800's The poor guy NEVER knew what he was 'buying' until she showed up. :shock: :lol: :x

Ok to upload a photo, first be on a 'post reply' window, like you are typing a reply,, scroll down to below the text box, and there is a gray box labled
'Upload Attachment'. Click on this box and below it will appear another gray box labled 'browse' it has a drop down arrow giving you a list of available
files on your computer or plugged into your computer..
find the file that has your photo 'image' and put the 'address' or file name of your image in the browse box.. then click on the 'Add the file' box.

You then will have a 'place inline' box. this will put the photo in your text message box. place the cursor where you want the photo image then click on the 'place inline' box.

Large files take a moment or two to move around, if your computer is slow or your internet connection is slow.

Check your PM's.

Not a fan of paint on cast iron myself but that stove looks nice, sorry but not 10x nicer.

Does it have a magazine, a cast iron 90 with a damper on the rear, and do you have any pictures of the inside and back ?
