St. Nicholas Base Burner

St. Nicholas Base Burner

PostBy: chrisbuick On: Sat Apr 06, 2013 9:12 am

Has anyone considered the St. Nicholas base burner the Bryants have listed for $1,800.00 on their web site?

I emailed them last night, and they sent me some more photos. They measured the fire pot and said it was 10".

They also confirmed it was a base burner.

Thought I'd ask - Chris

That's certainly a beautiful stove! A 10 inch pot would be too small a stove for my house, you know better what you might need for BTUs...

In a Maine winter a 10" pot would not keep the outhouse warm.

hahaha, yea but Mainers are used to it and need only to find a bear or moose to slaughter to cover themselves in fur while they rip the heads off their live lobsters and cook em' up on a stick :lol:

Thats a beautiful barrel on that stove and id trade it for my 14" in a heartbeat.

It's definitely too small for what I need.

Plus, it's out of my price range right now.

I've got two stoves coming already.

I was curious as to why no one has bought it. I think they've had it a while.

Donna said they don't get base burners often.

The reason is most people are unaware that their is a difference in the operation, function and efficiency of a base burner VS. a pretty parlor stove like an oak

I had read on an older post or a totally different venue that the St. Nicholas stove had a limited reproduction in the 80's in Portland Me. I am curios if this contributes to the legacy or the value, I do not know but would be interesting to find out!

I did consider that stove but went with the Kineo that you can see in some of those photos. I was chatting with William and he said that might even be a reproduction of the St. Nicholas stove but was not sure. It sure is a pretty stove either way but must weigh a ton as it is all cast iron, no rolled barrel on that one.

I am driving there right after I get out of work Friday morning. It will take me about 7.5 hrs but will be worth it to see my new stove and to check out all the other ones as well. I hear they have over 1,000 stoves there. I am drooling already! :drool: :drool: :drool:

You are right, that cast iron barrel must throw some serious heat!

I was at Bryant's this weekend and saw the St. Nicolas in person. It is a pretty stove with all the detail in it. This stove is all original, including the fire brick. The stove in the photos is indeed an original, they took me out back and showed me a reproduction one and there is no comparison in the castings. It is small but I am sure it would put out some nice heat for a small area.
