£SOLD as a client pre order:  Another available re enamelled in the colour of your choice.
This example of the Deville Hiver has undergone a complete restoration, including a colour change and re chroming. The existing enamel has been shot blasted and removed and the entire stove has been re enamelled in the colour choice of the client that purchased this striking stove It dates to the middle of the art deco movement (about 1925-1930) and is now in simply fantastic condition.

This is the largest stovein the "Lilyver" family, called "Hiver" (meaning winter). it is much taller than its counterparts, standing a full 14cms (5½") taller than the very popular "Lilyver" The casting designs on the front of the stove are exquisite.
It is quite rare in this colour scheme of black enamel and chrome.

The Hiver has the benefit of a complete "body off" restoration with all new firebox parts: smokebox; a set of firebox side plates; top grill; firebox top plate; mica in the door and a set of firebricks. With renewed enamel and  a fully restored firebox, this stove is as good as it gets!

It was made by the well known manufacturer Deville & Cie of Charleville in the Ardennes between 1925 and 1935, and can be found in their 1931 catalogue. This is medium sized stove, and is called a 'poele à feu visible et continue' by the manufacturers.  Now, in pristine condition, and with the quality of casting and enamelling associated with Deville. The stove epitomises the best in the between art nouveau and art deco style and design period.  

It is around 80-90 years old and the condition is superior to a usual stove of its age. All working parts are in excellent condition, just connect the flue, light the match and away you go!

This stove was designed for coal and coke burning, it will burn wood easily too but in smaller pieces. It will run on one charge of anthracite for 12-18 hours This is a beautiful, unusual stove and these photos do not really do it justice. The price when new, in 1930, was 435 old French francs.
