Description
This is an example of a Deville Lily that has undergone a complete restoration, including a colour change. The existing enamel has been shot blasted and removed and the entire stove has been re enamelled in the colour choice of the client that purchased this sweet little stove coming from the end of the art nouveau movement (about 1910-1920) which is now in simply fantastic condition.

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. 

It is in mint condition, and with the quality of casting associated with Deville. "Lily" epitomises the best in Art Nouveau style and design.  

Please note that Lily has undergone a complete strip down and rebuild with the following new firebox parts: smoke box or throat plate; side plates; new top grill; new removable top grill new set of firebricks; it has been completely resealed and the mica windows have been renewed. 

It is  80-100 years old, 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 320 old French francs.
