well, the original owner of this collection I dont believe burned any of these stoves (he was purely a collector of some of the most rare stoves on earth), the stoves were meticulously rebuilt in a fasion that goes WAY beyond a restoration at most stove shops (If you notice... the nickel, the parts, the finials, are better than original), Nickel plating parts that were not nickeled and even nickle plating individual names on parts while leaving the remainder of the part polished iron), Paperwork documents with many of the units that include manuals and brochures just never seen (like the example above that William was Hootin & Hollerin about :up: ), Original Tilework, Jewels, finials that just are not only in tack but restored by experts in the field (not mearly stove experts... but antique tile experts, antique artwork experts, etc.) Most of These are truelly Museum quality pieces that in many cases are one of a kind.

Im sure Walter can ship these anyplace he wants (obviously it cost "something" to have them crated/protected).

Can't argue with our resident Victorian. Those damn Sepoys were a bit of a pother though.


Yes, the Sepoys and Button Hooks. :)

One of the amazing things about a lot of these stoves is that they are the top of the line models with all the options. The piggy back ovens, for example; they are very uncommon to find now, but; here there are several stoves that have them.
One of my absolute favorites is the Red Cross Signal you have shown here. I think those are one of the most beautiful and tasteful stoves made during the mica era 1880-1900.

If I needed a large base burner for a big space, it would be the Germer Radiant Home. The, "K" series of Radiant Homes were perhaps the best of the best of these. These are absolute masterpieces of design and function. Of course they came with more than enough glitz to satisfy anyone's desire for it.

Some of stuff I see this Walter guy showing me is mindblowing :notworthy: when I found this place the first thing I said was OMFG... we need to start achieving this stuff because its like pulling up live dinosaurs out of thin air :lol:
I think all the mods need to pitch together $10k each so we can just buy the whole damb museum :clap: or ask Dave & Matt in their success to go buy it and set it up in PA where we can at least go visit it!

more like $10k each (well some are $4k, some as high as $12k)... well over 30 Mint state baseburners (brand new!)... my guess is $100k would be pretty fair to all parties for a wholesale estate purchase of "everything". One Tractor Trailer should hold them all... But only Walter can accept or deny an offer, Walter may be quite happy to sell them one by one for $4-$12 each over many years or decades? (im only stating what my opinion is on a whole "Lot" purchase).
