Vintage Stoves in Europe

PostBy: Cap On: Mon Sep 01, 2008 4:37 pm

Gang,
I've been researching looking for info for older stoves built in France, Belgium & England. Check out site linked below. Look at the great images on the *Stoves sold* page. Neat stuff. Quite different from our *Black boxes*. Seems as if all of Europe's old stuff is hand fired. Funny how early Americans were so intuitive and liked to build equipment using mechanics & machinery. i.e Stokers with auto feed. The Europeans focused on beautifying their designs with enamel & fancy design. Quite a different approach.

I don't know why we can't make stoves like that today.Most of them are just flat sand cast and held together with stove bolts.Porcelain is cheap to do also.I think we've lost so much over the years.The only machining on my ulefos is the door to the stove body.The door sits in a V groove to close and to this day if you put a peice of paper in the door and close it the paper gets stuck...no warpage at all.SAD
