Description
This is Art Deco styling at its best! 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.

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 120 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. 

In excellent condition, and with the quality of casting and enamelling associated with Deville. The stove epitomises the best in Deco style, taste and design.  

The enamel on this particular Antinéa  is  generally,  is in good condition. It does have  a couple of noticeable chips on the left and right side. One of its previous owners misplaced the hook on ash collector that sits below the ash box, so we have had a new one cast and finished it in black.

Please note that the mica windows are in excellent condition and the firebricks have been replaced.

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.
