Great question, I saw this on CL and have been emailing with the seller, he says it is a few years old and this was before initial installation. He also says it is a rare color and they don't make it anymore, which I agree. I'll inquire, but when did they start making the V2 by chance?I don't think the v3 is available in ivory. It may be a v1. What does the UL label say on the back for manufacture date?
My guess would be that the ashlip was damaged and an ivory one couldn't be found or they didn't want to pay for itThat would be my guess too. Ask the poster some current pictures and go carefully. If possible, get pictures of the UL tag on the back and of the grate area corners, cleaned of all ash.
Was this stove painted ivory? The black ash door hinge looks odd as does the black ashlip.
Nope. The V2 does not have all those arches. I have the V2 and the arches look the same as the V3. Here’s a link to the V2 manual and you can see the arches:Hold on everybody- that is definitely a Version 2 Oslo, from the arches in the front door. V3 has less arch pieces. The ashlip is not installed, it sits on top of that non enameled piece of cast under the door. Its not a cast iron baffle version of the Oslo cause it has the wooden handle on the ashdoor, not the silver egg that used the stove tool to turn the handle. I do not see the ashlip on the side loading door attached, so I'm guessing that stove is circa 2014-2015. Still a pretty stove, but blue black still my fav...
