hello I recently bought a house and in the basement is this old coal stove (at least I think it's a coal stove) it is made by agricola furnace company i have spent the past 2 hours trying to find some information on this and cant find much of anything and there is no pictures of an agricola that even look close to this one that I have been able to find. i think it's made from cast iron and either ceramic or enamel. if anyone knows what this is or can point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it. I'm trying to find out the model, when it was made and how much it's worth if anything.

It's an art deco style parlor stove. I would guess vintage to be somewhere around 1900-1920? Agricola made a lot of stoves including for catalog houses like Montgomery Ward.

You'd do better to look on antique stove sites for comparables. The value is in the eyes of the beholder, but if it were cleaned up well and if it is fully functional then it will go for more. I would guess around $4-500, but that is just a guess.
