This is Art Deco styling at its mostb subime! This stove comes from slap bang in the middle of the Art Deco movement from the early 1930's which is in excellent order throughout having been the subject of a complete body off restoration, with all worn out parts renewed/replaced.  Please note that the mica windows are in excellent condition and the firebricks have been replaced.

You don’t need to have a huge drawing room to get the benefit from this refined stove, however it will heat a room of up to 100 cubic meters. The casting designs on the front of the stove remind one of the superb buildings built in the 30's in New York.   from the usual wear which is to be expected of any piece like this stove that is of a certain age, and that has been used to give heat and warmth to its previous owners.

It was made by the well known manufacturer Caloria of Paris who took over Chappee and Nanquette around 1930, and can still be found in their 1936 catalogue. This is medium to larger sized stove, and is called a 'poele à feu visible et continue' by the manufacturers. 

This particular Antinéa  comes with a matching cast iron enamelled hearth which is really hard to find these days.
Although the enamel generally,  is in good condition., it does have a couple of small chips on the front left. The matching hook on ash collector that sits below the ash box is present.

Please note that there is an option of a nickelled front door as shown in the last photo below.

It is around 80 years old and the condition is consistent with its age.   All working parts are in excellent condition, just connect the flue, light the match and away you go!

This stove was designed for coal and coke burning, it will burn wood easily too but in smaller pieces. It will run on one charge of anthracite for 12-18 hours This is a beautiful, unusual stove and these photos do not really do it justice. The price when new, in 1930, was 395 old French francs.
