    Kachelofens are common in parts of Europe. Some are much more grand. That Weso is in primo condition. If I lived in CT I would definitely be considering it. Weso is a large old German firm.

    Agreed. I have seen several variations of this stove while searching and this one is in, seemingly, great shape. This is the first one I've seen that I have liked.

    Ugh-leeeeee.

    Though 'tis modest and charming compared to what else you'll see if you check out Kachelofen on Google Images. As for the Craig's List one, kinda resembles the alter where I took Communion last Sunday (tho Fritz and his brochure honey sure seem to be enjoying their shiny new kachel; I miss the 70s).

    Wow this guy lives pretty close to me. I was in a house heated by one of these in Budapest last year and they seem to work really well. If I had the space for this I would be all in.

    Well, 27 anyway:) Too old for me.

    Useable with coal, though.

    That's a cool stove, but personally I'd stick with a newer EPA stove with either secondary burner tubes or a cat. Too much progress made in modern stoves to give it up for a nostalgia deal.

    I don't see burn marks in his carpet. I doubt he uses it much. It's funny how his bio bricks put out more heat than coal too.
