    Hard to see, it looks like an old Jotul or a knock-off (Skandia). Better pictures would help. Is there a tag plate somewhere? @begreen

    Let's wait for the experts chime in, won't be too long. Do you know if it has any cracks or discoloration due to overheating?

    It looks like a jotul 602 clone. A real 602 would have the name jotul cast in the front door. Not a lot of details in the photo. There has to be liner plates in good condition inside of it or its not going to last long. Definitely not a house stove.

    Most probably a Scandia - a company which made knock-offs in Taiwan for year, before they were sued for trademark violations - and went out of business.

    It may be a copy of a Trolla or another similar European model - if it was one of those models, it would very likely have the name cast into the door.

    It appears it is a Trolla 104 copy, but the original would have the name. See enclosed.

    I have seen Scandias with Scandia logos and many without. Some firm also bought Portland Stove Foundry's name after the bankruptcy and was selling Taiwanese knockoffs. Cloned stoves really didnt go away until they had to be EPA certified.

    I also expect we use the term Scandia to reflect several Taiwanese firms that made stoves of variable quality. Scandia was probably just a middleman that supplied stove models to local foundrys for them to break down and duplicate. Low bidder won and consumers on the other end who thought they were getting a quality stove lost

    There are several iterations of these knockoffs. Not all Scandias had their name cast in front. Some just said made in taiwan on the back.

    still have it. going to make a heater for the pool. ran mine hard real hard it could heat the basement faster and hotter than the h2 but it shows. all above the bricks on the side is white. and the way the door was constructed on the inside pushed air into the smoke path and it ran smokeless never a dirty chimney. but yes very light in the weight dept.
