    ...Just got it off my truck last night, ...but as requested, ...here's a few photos.
    It is/was painted in the Jotul Iron color when initially purchased by the original owner. I simply cleaned it up, ...and here's how it looks...

    I'll say it again: that's got to be one of the finest looking stoves on the market today.

    It looks like new.

    Take your time and install it correctly.

    You will love it! Congrats!

    Very nice stove. My neighbor across the street has one but it's white - I like yours better. I get very jealous when I look out across the street and there is not even a hint of smoke ever coming out of his chimney and I know he's got that Oslo blazing. Not that I have a ton of smoke coming out of my chimney but I do get some from time to time especially with a fresh load out of my inexpensive little CFM. It's actually kind of cool in the morning when the sun is just right it casts a shadow of my house onto the snow covered field out back. When there is smoke coming out of the chimney you can see it in the shadow and it looks really cool. I'll have to try and take a picture next time.

    My preference is for the enamelled stoves, but there is no denying that the Jotuls are some of the best looking stoves on the market; let's face it, good "lines" are good "lines" no matter the color. Congrats! may it serve you well. And I look forward to the pictures of the installation, too.

    It is, and unless the handle is different from mine, it doesn't look quite closed properly yet ;-P

    Those are beautiful stoves. My father has the same model, and swears by it. I am sure you will be pleased with how it runs, and as others have commented, it is amazing to see how efficent it burns. Good luck on the install.

    ...as per the original owner, ...he had it (re)painted (in Jotul Iron) by the place he purchased it from new.
