Item specifics


La Salamandre


Portable Stove


Edward Chaboche


Louis XVI



La Salamandre Louis XVI Fabulous Stove - Art deco/Minimalist - multi-fuel stove by E Chaboche - Rare Antique French Stove in the United States!!!

French wood/coal burning stove by E Chaboche of Paris, from the Art Nouveau period, manufactured sometime between 1906 and 1940

This is the Rolls Royce of wood burning stoves. From the moment that Edward Chaboche released his first Salamandre model the "Premier Modèle" or "Modèle Rond" in 1883, he wiped the floor with all of the competition, and continued to do so right up to the fall of France in 1940. Every one of his competitors would design and release on to the market a similar design, but none were as successful as Chaboche.

This Louis XVI model is in first class condition and has the "nickelled" option which made it a cut above the Jones's (or Lefevre's!) It would enhance any period drawing room, dining room. The color is not unusual to find in a stove of this period, but nickelled option really enhance its looks. It also has a fantastic feature: it's on roulettes (wheels) and has porcelain handles, with on the top so it can be moved from room to room even when lit!

The stove has a salamander motif in the casting on the top of the door which really adds to its beauty & charm. The Louis XVI is between 71 and 105 years old.

This is a quality stove from a quality manufacturer and the engineering stands the test of time.  There are two small cracks to the stove and one chip (all pictured), which is to be expected for a piece of that age. It is designed to burn a combination of wood, wood/coal or just coal.  It has not been used since 1961, per the French newspaper (pictured) inside the stove.

So go on, be the envy of your friends, change your life and enjoy this rare piece of French architectural history!

The dimensions are:

75cms (30 ") H x 63cms (24") L x 48cms (16 " ) W and the flue size is oval - 14.5cms (5¾") x 7.5cms (3") weight 85kgs (215 lbs)

Weight 98kgs (215 lbs)

NO shipping, LOCAL PICK UP ONLY!!!  As you will be picking up the antique stove in person and viewing it first hand, you may receive immediate refund should you decide not to remove the antique stove.
