That's the asking price not the sale price :D I would guess it sells for half that.

That stove, competently restored, may very well increase in value. Whereas a box stove is like a car, you lose significant value as soon as it's "driven off the lot" :lol:

Plus I bet it will easily outperform any box stove of equal fire pot capacity.

I will now go arm my missile defense system to stop the incoming .. :P


A thing of beauty but that is in the eye of the beholder. Not my favorite brand by any means and I would not buy it. If I wanted just a big slab of iron with expensive to maintain pipes coming out of it I could have just bought an EFM. So is aany stove just an applianceclike a dish washer or is it a thing of beauty that excites you every time you look at it. Says he as it is freezing outside, the room is dark, TV off and I am enthralled. I know , it's an old photo but pearls before swine is a waste of time so no new pics for you.

MA, you get marks for effort but if you want me to wet my pants send a new pic of Pierres stove. I am searching for a perfect Baltimore heater but it would need to be a lot better than that for $5000.

I didn't even mention my EFM coal boiler.... did i ???

I paid $100 for my Crane 404 which in the eyes of many here is just a box stove. I paid #35 for 1 new glass & a few dollars for gasket for the 3 pieces of glass.This stove has flawlessly heated for 3 seasons, & is likely capable of continuing to do so for many ,many yrs yet without tearing it apart & spending major $$ to get it safe to use.

So if i ask $600 for a lawn tractor, i am not supposed to expect to get $600 for it ?? That ain't how i do business nor how i buy things. If seller is asking a higher price than i want to pay,i MIGHT tell him that i will only go so high & walk away.

My Crane 404 that i paid $100 for is likely still worth at least that much after heating for 3 seasons. I didn't need to tear it apart to use it either & likely will never need to even after many more yrs of use.

As far as performance... i put coal in,get burnt up coal in ash form in the ash pan,thimble temp is typically 110*- 150*, stove room is typically 75-77*,most of house is 75*. I don't need the glamor of a fancy stove to exist in this life.

Don't count your stove out, Dave. The Crane "is" a fancy stove. :)

Mike, That is the same one that was posted on Craigslist. It's identical to my Golden Sun, except he is asking $5,000 more, and the nickel footrest is missing.

Here is something you may never, ever see again! A coal stoker boiler for 75 bucks!
This looks a lot like the "Anthra-Heat" mini-stoker I saw a couple years ago.

It's all down to condition, I am not looking for a bargain I like perfect.

I am sorry that I delayed my reply but I was on life support and the prognosis was not good. Then Shelley told me the coal board as up again and I lept up, poured a beer and began reading. Never felt better.

Hi all, lot of nice stoves here, keep on the good job.
One thing I need to say about buying an antique stove, restoring an antique stove, burning an antique stove is that: buying, restoring and and burning an antique stove is much more, it is not just a money thing.
Not many thing compare to sit in front of a 1874 cast iron stove that can works just like when brand new while keeping the entire house warm, a sort of security feeling that my poor English can't explain. And if you did restore it yourself you get a nice bonus of satisfaction, you make an honor to the peoples who made those antique creations.
