It obviously needs a complete, total restoration. It needs a finial and a new barrel. The most important parts are the fire pot and condition of the base. If the firepot is cracked, no big deal. If any part of the base around the ash pit is cracked or corroded due to moisture.Then it is a very, VERY big deal. Do you have possession of the stove?

I do have a nice one with a rotating pot (with which I've been planning to power an auxiliary boiler for DHW production, hydronic heat, pool water heating, etc.). The Glenwood would require a little surgery, but after being mounted on that rotating pot everyone would get a nice view of it!
Please remain calm, manly men, as no Glenwood was harmed in the making of this post. However, if you have any ideas regarding a good home for it, that could help to rescue it from a per-pound valuation.
