Franco, did you ever heard about antique ""white"" nickel plating? I read that some compagny made it in the past. I read that in an old antique stoves catalog I have here, but I will have to take a few minutes to find the book :oops:

No never heard of it. I think the degree of polish or smoothness of the finish would effect the way light reflects off it and how the color looks. If more satin I think it would look whiter.


tin·sel Noun /ˈtinsəl/

Synonyms:
adjective: flashy, showy, gaudy, meretricious, trumpery, garish
noun: spangle
A form of decoration consisting of thin strips of shiny metal foil
Showy or superficial attractiveness or glamour
his taste for the tinsel of the art world

Mike, here is a photo showing an Eclipse stove looking like yours. In the past many stoves were about the same exceted for the name. Many more photos in the catalog showing the flue gasses path, convection air path...If needed I can send some more if interested.

Nice stove and welcome to the forum, if you had filled out your profile I would have spoke up sooner. There is a foundry in maine and I believe it is in Auburn and they can help you with the plating as well, good luck, Mike. P.S. I know a guy from maine that drove to california :lol:[/quote]

If I can figure out how to get back into my profile I'll add more info.

Your stove is worth every penny you spend on restoring it and returning it to use. It will pay for itself in a short time by saving you gobs of money on your heating costs.

You need to have your stove professionally restored.

The place to get your stove restored is Antique Stove Hospital. Emery is tops in the field. He is hard to catch because he is extremely busy. You also might not know but the demand for base burners has blown through the roof and you have won have the battle by even having one in your possession. Be persistent in calling Emery. Or just take the stove to him.


Thanks for the advice. I'll show this to my wife. I've been trying to talk her into letting me have it restored, she won't let it out of her sight.

Here is the tip...open the original saved pic with the operating system's picture viewer, viewer will allow to rotate either CW or CCW, then just save the copy of the new, correctly orientated pic back to the original pic's name and say yes to allow it to over write the original.

Hope this helps. :)

You are quite welcome. Remember, the stove will do you no good just sitting there collecting dust.
