Nice Antique Foster's Maple No 16 Potbelly Stove-Needs Little TLC

I picked this up from one of my favorite auction houses in upstate New York and although it is not as fancy as a few of the stoves I currently have listed, I just liked the size a whole lot and thought surely someone could use it. I tried to picture it well to both show it off and answer some questions and I also tried to price it for good value in hopes of a quick sale. I tried to picture it well to both show it off and answer some questions. It measures about 51" tall and 23" wide at the skirt, and the inside diameter looks to be about 15". There is a gap at the seem that should be welded and the silver portions are painted. If one wanted to make this into an absolutely beautiful stove again it could be nickel plated and the seem brazed easily enough. I trying to figure out where in my house to place it and have a friend that does plating so it may be done or could be done for my cost for customer. In the mean time it is for sale with the two things I just mentioned and some new paint high temperature paint would be a good idea. Nothing difficult or tremendously time consuming and hopefully it might catch the eye of someone fairly local. I work very hard to ship large or any item as feasibly as possible, but also remember I am located in convenient Springfield Mass which is very close by to NYC, Albany, Boston, Hartford, etc. I'm hoping a shop visitor might spot this somewhat locally making pick up/delivery possible too. It measures and is complete Thanks for your time and interest and the great first 2 years on Ruby Lane.
