We recently had a client who had an antique stove, that worked well, but wasn’t fitting in with the rest of the decor in her home. She was about to dispose of it, until we determined it was valued at about $7500.00 as is.
These stoves may not be everyone’s dream but there’s a market for them across the United States and people are willing to pay top dollar. Additionally they are not scared off by shipping fees.
A professional restoration can run $750 but it will look brand new once done. If you want a change in color, no problem, professional restoration firms can have all or parts of the stove powder coated or painted any colors you wish.
Next time you come across an old antique stove, take a second look, it could be a worthwhile investment.
