FAWN COLOURED ENAMEL CAST IRON exterior, interior STEEL firebox with original firebrick
NEW Mica Windows and REMOVABLE round grill cover for ONE SMALL cooking ring
this stove is a classic and beautiful piece of ART DECO industrial design by the most famous of all French stove foundries GODIN.
This stove is efficient for its age as it is partly lined with fire bricks,(they act as heat store and insulate the firebox to allow the fire to burn more efficiently)
It is surrounded by an outer shell of enameled cast iron which acts to circulate cold air past the firebox and up into the room
The model and the colour is quite rare.
most models are ranges of PALE blues or darker browns.
It has a decorative cover over the top cooking plate
Takes logs up to 40cm
top baffel inside firebox to increase efficiency
The top "chauffette" plate of this wood stove lifts up to allow cooking on the firebox surface and the rest of the stove top can be used to warm items
This model is still in good overall condition and is very suitable for use as a woodstove, it burns extremely well as a bio ethanol burner not needing to keep the door ajar as with many other woodstoves using alcohol. It can also be used as a lighting or candle housing or as a decorative centre piece.
Width 58cm with door open 80cm
top of flu to floor 44cm
This stove will produce up to 7 KW
FIREBOX DIMENSIONS 28 X 35 X 48
this stove has been completely dismantled, renovated and rebuilt. Replaced the window mica and door tape. Rubbed down and painted all the interior & exterior steel box cast-iron shell & parts using 900°c stove enamel paint or stove blacking where appropriate resealed joints using high quality ceramic fire cement Rubbed down and pared back damadged chromed parts to bare metal and repainted with silver 900c stove enamel Replaced 16 stainless steel bolts Cleaned and polished the enamel. Lit the stove to check for leaks and seal the enamel paints and sealents used. Original firebrick in situ not needing replacing.
Still in good condition and suitable for safe use as a 5kw woodstove. There are two cracks to the exterior shell casing and one hairline crack to the top plate frame. On inspection it is apparent that neither of these faults will affect the stability, safety nor the efficiency or use of the stove provided the stove is used as it was intended for - wood or bio ethanol and not coal or anthracite
The door has some significant bubbling which is mostly hidden when it is shut
The low price of such a rare model reflects these defaults
Godin still make very respected and well-used stoves today because they are innovative, careful and use very high quality materials and processes.
The Godin foundry is based on similar principles to the historically important Bournville factory village in the UK
built by Jean-Baptise André Godin
