My old Home Comfort Wood Cook Stove
[Return to Topics]

I have a complete (I believe) old Home Comfort Stove (a Model 'CB', circa 1924-26?), tan and grey enamel, coal grates so you can burn wood or coal, hot water tank which can be used on either side of the stove, warming ovens, etc. I even have the original cookbook which came with the stove and the price tag which was affixed to this beauty when it was purchased ($149.95 new at that time). I'm going to be moving shortly and need to find a new home for my old friend (I have owned this stove for about 28 years and used to bake bread in it every Tuesday throughout the winter months). Can anyone tell me the approximate value of this stove and possibly suggest where the appropriate place would be to place an ad for it? I would love for it to go to someone who really appreciates this sort of thing and will take good care of it and use it. The Stove is in excellent condition.. no rust at all. And it was only used about a year after purchase before electricity arrived in the area and it was retired to a storage shed until I found it and purchased it. Any help or information anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated. You can email me or my cell phone is 801-244-1968 and I'm located in Moab, UT. I brought the stove out west with me from TN back in the 70's. I couldn't stand the idea of leaving it behind... Thanks.

I recommend you go for the big audience. Clean it up, photograph it, and post it on ebay. Put a high reserve price on it and see what it will bring. A stove that old is a piece of Americana that relic hunters would pay high dollars for.

Remember to place a high reserve price on it and if that price is not met, you don't have to sell. And, ebay gives you the option to relist the stove. I buy and sell on ebay quite often. I have found it to be a good source of extra income. Good luck..........gfp

Sir, I would think that an old wood or coal fired cook stove with the water heater in this condition would command just about any price. New ones are out of site for the quality you have in yours. I grew up with an old Atlanta which had the water heater and ovens on top and would love to have ours now.
