Description
Another Deville Lily but this time in the rarer colour of burgundy. It comes from the end of the Art Nouveau movement about 1910 and which is in simply fantastic condition, 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. The casting designs on the front of the stove are exquisite. We can’t find anything wrong with this stove apart 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 Deville & Cie of Charleville in the Ardennes between 1910 and 1930, and can be found in their 1930 catalogue. This is medium 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 Art Nouveau style and design.  

This stove is a working stove, and as such it does have one or two small chips to the enamel, but you have to search for them. This stove does not come with the original hook on ash plate, this will be supplied in a cast iron finish. (not shown in the photos.)

Please note that the mica windows have been renewed, the firebricks have been renewed and it has a new smoke box.

It is between 90 & 100 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 1910, was 42 old French francs.
