French Art Nouveau Enameled Blue Stove or Oven


Fantastic French Art Nouveau enameled blue ceramic cast iron stove or oven. The oven exterior is decorated in a classic Art Nouveau style with amazing floral and foliate motifs over a textured background. So French and inspiring these elaborate stoves served as gathering places for cold homes. They were used for heating rooms and preparing meals as well as heating dishes with hot plates. Truly a work of functioning art with hand-painted doors with large brass frames. The stove is supported by large square feet in the front ending with large round disc feet. Includes mounting hardware for towel racks and everything else in the photos. Lovely focal point of a room. From an estate in Malibu, CA.
