    received a stove from Romania. No marking, no name - nothing. Any idea who produced it?

    I've sent photos of this stove to 2 technical museums, also to 3 factories that would have made this type of stove in the past, (Metalica Oradea, Sanus/Electrolux Satu-Mare and Metalo-globus Bucharest) no one seems to know anything about this product. Did you open it? Check every piece of metal, something must be written somewhere.

    Hello Kristi,
    thank you for your help.
    I did complete dismanteling of the stove, cleaned everything - there is absolut nothing, no sign, no mark, no stamp - nothing.
    Geogijewski mentioned Satu-Mare to me before. So I thought it might have been made by "1 Septembre" who was for-runner of now Electrolux company.
    Minski / Metalica did always mark their stoves - that I know.

    The only hint that it is from Romania ( or produced for the Romanian market ) is this label around the spindel

    Hi Peter,
    A stove that looks almost as yours is still available on the market, but has been left in a cottage in the mountains and the seller will get there just in March, now it's too much snow.
    As far as he remembers, the stove has a logo somewhere.

    Hi Kristi,
    great job you made so far. This might give us a hint as there are parallels with this stove.So we will wait till snow has gone.
