Hello, I am helping a client downsize her historic home. She wants to sell this antique porcelain stove. It is full working order. It is marked Robert Shaw with a Crown logo. Any idea how to place a value on this? Any resources you can share? Thank you for your help.

It is not the exact same, but the site itself could be of use to you...and the prices? Great!

Thank you for this helpful response! Wow, look at those prices. One can dream. I guess I can start high and lower. Ive seen prices from $450 to $5000. I know ours is working but by no means restored.

I'm still seeking the exact model name, date, and info. Thanks for your help!

Wow, those are great prices!  However, in my opinion yours is older, rarer, unique and in better condition, which means more valuable. Maybe (?) 5 figures?

First of all you have a CROWN STOVE. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&biw=1440&...

"ROBERTSHAW" name shows on dials, stats,etc.

The thermostat and dials and controls are by Robertshaw Company.  Not a typo or error. Name is one word, not two. "Robert Shaw" is a British actor.

Serial Number and Model Number should be stamped into the metal on back, or inside an oven or drawer, or under it.

My guess is that yours was made in the 1920s-30s. The handles say "Art Deco" which is another bonus in valuing it.

Many products that use the word or symbol of "crown" do so with authority of the Royal Crown. It means that their products are used by the Royal family. If confirmed it could add another digit in the value...

Thank you for your thoughtful response! How exciting that our old stove may be rare. I will try to find the serial or model number. For 5 figures I should consider paying for an appraisal. I found a company that offers appraisal for a $50 fee.
How cool!
Those are excellent leads. Can't wait to dig into this further! Thank you for your research! I will report back when I identity and or sell the stove.

Sorry the uploader is flipping my photos. I found the model number. Looks like 900 series!

Crown Stove Works of Cicero IL was founded by William Rogers and was family owned.

Maybe we can be more successful if we are looking in America again.


It is the exact same stove?!
