Just Stumbled Onto A Glenwood Oak 50

Just Stumbled Onto A Glenwood Oak 50

PostBy: chrisbuick On: Wed May 14, 2014 10:22 pm

I happened to check eBay this afternoon, and noticed this rare Glenwood Oak 50 project stove.

I've only heard about this 50 size from Emery - when I traded him a Glenwood 40 last Fall.

It's complete, but needs a full restore (new cylinder, etc.). Plus, it's direct draft (too bad).

I think I will eventually use it to heat my shop space, maybe using wood?

It will be large enough to hold a good load of wood.

It was originally in Marjorie Merriweather Post's Topridge, her Tupper Lake estate in the Adirondacks. She was once the richest woman in the world($250 million)!

I made him an offer of $225.00 - accepted.

I'm pleased - Chris

If one's good, is two better ? :D

There's another 50 for sale in Florida.

And they only want eleven times what you paid for that one. :roll:

Hey, Chris.....I thought you were going to chill on these babies for a while......LOL!!!!!!!

No P on the back pipe, one can easily be fabricated, plus you can also have the cyl made to almost any length you want.

Scott - I was not planning to buy any more, but I've regretted trading the Glenwood 40 to Emery (for some reason) and I realized it might work for me as a wood stove. Plus, it's fairly rare and it needs to be brought back.

It was part of the Gilded Age and I got hooked by the Marjorie Merriweather Post/Camp Topridge connection!

Hopefully I can get to it at some point.

I think I'll sell my Royal Stewart 171 Oak, which I really don't need, to make room.

good buy , a rare stove and history to boot. You should some how document the history I think that is important. Doug at Barnstable has had his share of 50s I remember him use one with back pipe and second story barrel.

Thanks Wilson and everyone who's shown interest.

I was reminded that there's a picture of Doug Pacheco standing by a Glenwood 50 with an extended barrel.

Here it is, and it's awesome:
