Description
This is a superb stove coming from the middle of the Art Deco movement in about 1930's (we have referenced this stove in our 1933 catalogue which is in simply fantastic condition.

This stove is a compact hybrid stove that can burn either wood or coal (and all its derivatives) or a combination of both. Fuel is loaded from the right hand door, or coal can be loaded from the top hatch found under the lid.

The 307 has the benefit of a complete refurbishment and service. The enamel work is in superb condition there is not even the usual wear which is to be expected on any piece like this stove that is of a certain age, and that has been used to give heat and warmth to its previous owner.

It was made by the well known manufacturer Rosieres in the Berry from the 1930's, and can be found in their 1933 catalogue. This is medium compact but very heavy stove, and is called a 'poele MIXT (muti fuel)  by the manufacturers.  In almost pristine condition, and with the quality of casting and enamelling associated with Rosieres. The stove epitomises the best in Art Deco style and design.  This stove is a working stove, and as such it may have one or two small chips to the enamel, but I can't find any! 

Please note that the mica windows have been renewed

It is around 80-90 years old and the condition is superior to a usual stove of its age. All working parts are in excellent condition, just connect the flue, light the match and away you go!

This is a beautiful, unusual stove and these photos do not really do it justice. The price when new, in 1930, was 290 old French francs.
