    Cool looking stove. My guess would be an old, 19th century stove, no idea on maker.

    Not with the glass front.

    It's a neat looking stove, but I suspect it has been made within the last 30 years with the glass front.

    Yeah, I doubt that is glass, more like mica. That stove looks to be 135 years old or more, and quite the deal at that.

    iiiiii dunno. somthing about it make it look like a newer stove made to look like an old parlor type stove, its certainly a beautiful unit. wish i could see some different angles. look under the ash lip though, it almost looks like an underneath heat shield that may not be cast, looks like too clean a line, might be steel. if this is the case i'd guess more modern like maybe 70's ish or so. i could be wrong but its hard to base a guess on a couple pictures of it burning.

    It is one those those english stoves, an esse or essex. Hard telling how old.
    I think there was a thread about similar stoves the other day, in the classic forum.

    For all intents and purposes it is an ugly stove.

    There is no accounting for taste...or lack thereof.

    Really, you don't like?

    I guess I am just enamored of the past.

    Wow, you guys are good at identifying stoves. I have to say, I kind of like it. It looks a like a 70s Rock and Roll something, like Hendrix craziness.

    If I go check it out, I will try to snap some pictures.

    I was thinking something more along the lines of Liberace than Hendrix...

    I know Jimi's spirit and he would not have bought that stove...well, actually, maybe if it came with a couple British groupies who had plaster.
