    Hello all!

    I'm Helen, and I live in Queensland, Australia. I have just purchased a fantastic little stove, and after spending a whole night on Google, I think that I have a Smith and Wellstood, or maybe a Falkirk "Queen Anne #7".

    I can only find references to Queen Anne No 6, or Queenie 6 but from the photos, I have noticed some small differences.

    1. The Queen Anne 6 has a round chimney opening, and mine has a very narrow oval
    2. The Queen Anne 6 has tool grooves in the 2 top plates, and the piece in between, where mine does not have these grooves to put a tool in to lift the plates.
    3. My stove has "Q7" on the front of the tray.

    I've only found one reference to a Queen Anne 7, but didn't contain any other information, not even a picture to compare.

    What I would like to know is whether anyone can more accurately identify my stove, and help with any information about when or where it was likely to have been made.
    My research has not provided a great deal of information to narrow any of this down, and takes me from Glasgow to South Africa as possible areas of production, from late 1800s to late 1900s.

    Please have a look at the photos that I've attached.

    I'd really appreciate any information about the history of this stove. I can't wait to install it and light it up!

    Helen

    Helen, I extend a very warm welcome to you, and am happy that you found us. We're a friendly bunch, as you'll discover. We do have a number of differently focused "sub-forums", if you will, and your very interesting inquiry, I think, belongs in our Classic Stove Forum, so I'm going to move your thread there. On a personal note, during my 30+ years in the US Navy, almost always in the Pacific, I visited a lot of places...but I never visited anyplace that I enjoyed as much as I did Australia. I'd love to revisit one day. I hope that some of the folks here can shed some light on this beautiful old stove you've got. Rick

    Thanks for moving my thread Rick, sorry for posting in the wrong place. It's nice to hear that you enjoyed coming to Oz :)

    I did a bit more homework, and haven't learned much more, I found a few Queen Anne 7s, but they have parts that I am missing, an ornate cover for the top, and decorative tray and lid in the bottom. I can't see whether they have the same narrow oval chimney as mine though.

    I sent an email to Falkirk, and got a reply that the company no longer exists, but nothing else to help me narrow down any details about my stove.
