@ Klook... great finds! The one Mica stove with all the nickel their is clearly a great piece and the round oak to a lessor degree, $4k seems like a good deal if the stove is refurbished and nickel is mint (just re-plating the nickel on a stove like these is at least $1k) if the guts and grate are mint also than its a fair price. I welcome anyone adding rare stoves to this museum thread (try to put the stove make/model on the first line in the post for future google searches).

Doug if these stoves are from Arkansas, at least two of them are now on eBay for $3500.

Amazing thread dcrane. Like many have said, these designs are lost forever, sad! True American craftsmanship. Thank you for sharing.

Aggravating, I took all the pics with my phone upright and they are all sideways! Not sure about the complete grates in the 20th Century stove and the Glenwood did not seem complete inside. Just my opinion and I am no expert on what should be in there at all. :oops:

maybe Walter in Arkansas? Ill write him to ask (I know he's far away I remember that or I would have been their grabbing these things up like candy corns!)

I met him on ebay yes! He has posted a couple on their.... but after talking with him and discovering the sheer enormity of his collection.... I just wanted to start cataloging and photographing everything before they scatter to the four winds :(
$3500 for some of these stoves is a bargain of immense proportion (I don't have to tell you guys that).

Well the picture didn't come through in the quote but it is the one with the guy trying to shut down the overheating stove and everyone running out of the house, but who/what is the little guy who looks like a test tube with legs? Somebody posted an alternate version of this card about a month ago with a different stove.

Jewel used the same ad card (maybe others did as well?)... Jewel might even be a subsidiary of Radiant Home (William may know that better than me)

What a post, the folks who built these were Craftsman through and through. I could sit here all day and read about this. I have a good used Surdiac I would trade if he was interested? Just a thought from a crazy kid in the Green Mountain state. Great work dcrane.

TY Vermonster (my fav. towns on the planet are Stowe Vermont & North Conway N.H.) ;)

Anyone is always welcome to add their museum type finds in this thread... all I ask is that you place the model/name brand in the first line before your photo's
