    When I was in my teens my parents gave me the Petromax Stove pictured below as a birthday present. Now in my late 60s I'd love to pass it on to a collector who might treat it the care it deserves and cherish it. Sadly the rods that are meant suspend the pan try are missing.

    Questions:

    Is there interest in such a stove?

    If so what sort of value might it have?

    How might I best go about selling it?

    I'd really love to pass this on to someone who would appreciate it for a fair price.

    Thanks for any informed replies.

    I'd love to have that to add to my stove collection, I don't own a Petromax. Can pay by Paypal or ? what works, shipped to California if we agree on a price.

    Bump.
    I don't have my heart set on obtaining this stove, I have quite a few stoves, so let Hugh know you have a interest if not already. Don't feel like you are bumping me out.

    I would be interested in the stove if it’s not already taken. It will go well with my two Petromax lanterns.

    Nice one, hope you will sell to the right person who loves it.
