Wheres Waldo...

PostBy: dcrane On: Sun Sep 08, 2013 5:33 am

Had the chance to take a road trip yesterday. I viewed an ad for a large antique kitchen stove... BUT in that photo my eyes swiftly started looking at everything BUT the kitchen stove (can you see what I see :woot: ?)

NoNo... I gave her a few bucks and I made sure she did not have to lift or do anything. This stove is one of those smaller baseburners (I don't even know what kind it is yet), says Florence on the finial but I don't know :gee: I do know it needs work on the base for sure (serious work as in a new casting), BUT... the grate, firepot, magazine, doors are in GREAT condition and the stove is small enough that all the parts will fit in my blast cab. I don't think anyone would have paid much for it because of the base (not the stand/feet, but the chamber under the ashpan area that is so cridical to these stoves). If it was not someone like me trying to save it, it would have been some knucklehead handing her $100.00 to use it for a planter or some shyt (I gave her what I truly believed its value "as is" was).

as soon as the sun rises and my son can help me unload it, I will post some pics and maybe we can figure out who makes it.

Well I'm sure I speak for everyone, make sure you keep us posted with pictures on the rebuild and completion. How lucky can someone get running into a nice gem like that.

Its all about being kind and trying to be honest about condition, If her finial was not broke I would have paid more, if the base was not rotted or cracked I would have paid more, the nickel is all but gone :( BUT.... it is a Gem and her grand papa used this stove and loved it! She felt good about me having it because she knew I appreciated it even though it needed a lot of work. The lil house it came out of was cutest thing I ever saw (complete with a fieldstone chimney and farmers porch)... kind of a cross between a doll house and real house :lol:

The structure from the photo looks exactly like a type of cabin I would want to build someday. Small, off grid loft Semi A-frame setup. It is a nice building.
