The stove at Byrant's is probably one that used to be in an old antique shop - since the 1960's, I believe. I bought the building in 1998 and swapped the stove at Bryant's last March.

Ive seen many repro's. over the years and I personally would NEVER buy one (they always seem to be some cheapo china made crap based on the original designs). The cost of obtaining the "real deal" is about the same in most cases and if i was taking the efforts to refurbish one it would not be a repro that i worked on (just my advise for whatever its worth).
