    @aalbers
    You have attention of membership I'm sure. That one is not an easy one to estimate for several reasons. It will be sought after.
    May be sold here already : ). ?

    If not, well presented in online auction, price under 140 USD would shock me BUT...
    .
    S&H cost is significant and you need to add that amount into the equation.
    From my ebayUS view (differs from Europe), S&H cost from Scandinavia will be $55USD minimum, quotes of $90 for 2 burner are not uncommon.

    Example someone might decide they could go $250 total, you need to provide shipping cost quote for prospects to know if total price lands in their price range.
    Good luck. I'm not in the running btw.

    I am sure that you must consider about the shipping as the tier 1 courier company, instead of the post services. Mean fedex, ups, dhl in order to avoid any further stressful situation. just in my opinion.
    Very nice stove.

    What an extraordinary find!
    Like new in the box and well over 80 years, when does that happen? As for it's value, the policy here is not to answer that, and no-one could say anything definitive anyway. With auctions the likely venue for objects like this, there is nothing established to base a figure on, except that it is NIB. So should yield serious money, but only if you auction it on an english language site, and willing to sell and ship worldwide.
    On Marktplaats.nl - a national dutch trading site - you would likely be disappointed, but you could have found it there!
    Typically for that era are the 'filigree' windshields that appeared only for a few years; could you give us a close-up of such a shield?
    Welcome to this site, you will like it here, met groet, Mike

    @Dutchmike

    The policy here has changed and valuations are allowed. The policy against valuations still stands at CPL.

    Cheers

    Ah, thank you Tony; I should log in more on CCS and roam the actualities!

    Then again, would it help my fellow countryman if my educated guess would be a £513.00?
    I have given some parameters that I believe are essential to get serious money, but auctions have that habit to fluctuate, and going that route (yourself) is not everybody's cup of tea. Mike

    Short of asking 'for how much' could you tell us if this sale went through this forum as with a PM?
