When I bought the Kineo at Bryant Stoves in Maine, Mrs. Bryant said she had literature on my stove but could not locate it. She was going to have Donna (works in the office) find it but never did receive any info. I would have liked to have literature myself. BTW, I think they had a Kineo Oak there at Bryant's when I was there, nice looking stove.

Looks like Bryant Stove may still have that Kineo Oak 18. It's pictured on their website under "Coal Parlor". Nice looking stove.

What are they asking for that stove at Bryant's? They painted over all the nickel work so the cost should be very reasonable as a lot of the money in a stove is in nickel work.

it's hard to say how much nickel was on it. the outer part of the lower skirt, the top and finial probably, who knows how much more. i have not been able to turn up a single other pic. of the stove.

if those parts were pretty rough ( pitting etc. ) it would make sense to paint them if you were after a large, solid, functional stove for low labor and a decent turn over.

Their web site says they are asking $1,200.00.

The lady that works in the office at Bryant's name is Donna and she usually gets right back to me usually the next day.

I've had no problem getting them by phone when I ordered new grate bars for my Modern Oak 118 a few weeks ago.

i'm in no precise hurry. many operations have a 24 hr. turn around with online responses, it's no big deal.

my comment was more to relate that i had made contacts and hoped to have some reportable info.

if i don't hear back i'll go ahead and call.

The price sounds good. I'd make sure that it was restored and they should have pictures of what is done. They know the drill. If it's restored then it's a good deal, now shipping!
