#2704      Sougland Triomphe Cheminee French stove
Suitable for decoration or BioEthanol conversion


Very beautiful large Cheminee style multi-fuel stove that is missing a few interior parts. The enamel is not quite as good as the photos show, there is some staining and a little chipping. The design and dramatic colour allow the stove to be seen as in the photos. No panel damage although the ash can fascia has been replaced. It is possible to convert this stove to BioEthanol use (this removes the need for a flue pipe). An engineer could fabricate the missing parts needed to burn solid fuels. We recommend decoration or a bio conversion as the best use for this stove.
More detail & extra photos available + another 3 Triomphes for service or restoration ~ black / golden tan / forest green, please ask.

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


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


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.
