Underdog wrote:This looks like a really nice stove. Seller lists it as a functioning/operational Royal Stewarts Coal Stove. The mica doors are beautiful and it has triangular grates. This sounds like a win/win for the right person. The missing front skirt could probably be cast from either of the matching side peices. The finial does not appear to be 100% but still there's something there. These stoves clean up very nicely and the cast base venting is a bonus. $150

I received an email response from the seller 6: 30 this morning, . He answered my questions and sent me a few more pictures. I also talked to him this afternoon and sealed the deal.

He told me a number of people contacted him today that wanted to see it.

If any of our members are really serious PM me. Otherwise I'm snagging it.

I called this guy and asked what shape the grates and firepot are in, he said they were in good shape. So I drove almost an hour to look at this stove...hey, its an Andes. :D What a disappointment, one grate was broken in half, another one was warped. The rust was so bad in places, I could not even tell if there were cracks in the base. I was disappointed but am learning when to walk away. :dancing:

The Barstow 315 is very similar to my Smith & Anthony Hub Heater 115. They are circulator stoves. The entire base has an outer jacket, which allows cold air to be brought up from underneath. They are WONDERFUL heaters and Barstows are really well made. Barstow merged with Smith & Anthony in the teens. According to Emery they rebranded the Barstows to read Smith Anthony which upped the overall quality level of S&A. They even have identical bases and ash doors. I paid $600 for mine, which was kind of high, but I'm happy. They're kind of rare. Emery was very impressed with the heat generated by my 115.

Someone should get this stove, but not at that high price.

The Stewart 155 is very similar to my Royal Stewart 171.

They're great heaters and have huge loading doors and a large fire box with pyramid grates.

My 171 has a few issues, but I still want to sell it for a very reasonable price.

This ad is confusing me. He shows a pic of 4 stoves together, and shows a price of 1K. Then he states "all stoves range from $250-$500. Then he shows the 315, separately. Is that the stove he asking a grand for? Or can you buy the 4 in the photo, "all 4", for a grand? Or separately, from $250-$500.??? ;)
