Thats a great stove - complete with trivet!
@z1ulike, Ben, that's quite the bit of flame candy, well thought out and designed! It's given me a few ideas on a roll-my-own project here!
Totally cool Comet no. 5.
Excellent, and that original trivet is exceptionally rare, as well as a wonderful piece of design and craftsmanship
Ben! holy cow wow.
trivet (only known?) and it's unfired? to boot,
that may be your once in a lifetime stroke of luck...
(you best have your affairs in order buddy : ) )
Congrats!! just wow
That’s a real beauty. I didn’t know these had a trivet.
Can't help thinking that it should be a comet number 3 with that trivet
(Hat and coat already on)
I love this triangular trivet!!!
The trivet is the icing on top of the cake! A rare enough stove itself, but the trivet!
It's almost worth getting a few re-cast for wall art!!
A couple of years ago I had did just that. I had a Vesuvius 100 that needed a grate so I borrowed one from a CCS member and mailed it off to the Auburn Stove Foundry in Maine. They made several copies at a cost of $50 each as I recall. I returned the original undamaged to its owner. Later I acquired an original shown here for comparison. The reproduction is on the left and the original on the right in these photos.
@z1ulike well if you will ever (hope not) need a kidney count me in to trade with this beautiful gem! Ahah
"Rangie: 'It's almost worth getting a few re-cast'; (you Ben): 'a couple of years ago I had did just that' " - well you really have done it now Ben - have you seen the queue forming outside your door already, all waiting for the first batch of your new triangular Comet trivet reproductions to be released
So, I'm going to enquire with that foundry (not too far from here) about getting an original Primus No. 1/5 cast iron trivet reproduced. i have one here that is pristine. I'll let you know how I get on. Peter
Yes, please do. My experience with Auburn Stove Foundry was very positive.
