#1737    Demoulin Jupiter ~ 19C design, very ornate.
For decoration due to missing parts.

£75

This antique Jupiter multi-fuel cylinder stove is from the Demoulins foundry in Belgium, it was produced around 1932. The design was heavily old fashioned even then (Art Deco was all the rage in the 1930's) but now it's a fabulous example of design and craftmanship from another age almost before cars were in use.
The 3 feet and grill that sits directly behind the door are missing, so we think it's best used as a decorative piece. Used for decoration it may have more effect if sited on a low plinth. Extra photos soon.

#2637    Rosieres Calcar No.16 ~ GIANT woodburner or m/f stove

£165

One of the largest stoves we have, a huge wood and multi-fuel tower stove from Rosieres. For example, this stove will take a log 700mm long, not many in our experience current or antique can do this.
Came to us with the top section removed from the body, it was dismantled correctly, all parts are with. The stove is photod as it came to us, dirty, dusty and with a coat of a light wax film for storage. The golden brown enamel will clean very very well as Rosieres are renown for their enamel quality. The central base grate requires replacement, a service and refitting the top section. Extra detail & photos available.

#2145    CCA (Coste CauMartin) 'Delta' ~ superb m/f or wood burning stove

£150

This Coste CauMartin multi-fuel French stove has a heavy duty and robust build. There's nothing clunky about it's style though, a swoopy design and aerodynamic shape makes the Delta a classic of design, a joy to look at. If it was not for the simple fact that the seals now need to be checked and re-sealed (where neccessary due to age) it would be up and ready to go. Excellent firebox for the size of the stove and good sized fuel loading door too. Complete with both original tools and removable hopper that's used with wood pellets or anthracite. Hopper removed for wood burning.

A service and  a single minor repair required, maybe best for a skilled DIY'er or have mechanical / engineering experiece. The end piece for the fuel door handle is missing too. Hearth lugs repaired, hearth fits as it should.

#2472    Mirus France ~ small simple wood burning stove suitable for  shed  workshop  garage

Reserved

Technically this small stove requires a simple service, window mica and a steel heat shield fabricated and fitted, and that's it. Often a Mirus firebox is perforated, this one is not, it's sound on all surfaces. The base firebricks are also very good condition and completely serviceable. Even though small, the firebox has a good capacity taking logs to 380mm long.
The front enamelled panel is undamaged but the enamel is fairly heavily scratched and chipped, the lid enamel is in better condition.
Due to the enamel condition it is possibly better suited to a workshop, shed or garage?  More photos available soon.
