Here is a Salamandre, not really sure of the manufacturer as the only identification we can find is ACC 420. Anyway, it has been converted to burn Bio Ethanol and is not suitable to burn any other fuel. So no chimney or flue is required and it comes complete with round Bio Box so it’s already to go, just needs a good home.

One of the oldest stoves we ever get from the late 1800’s. Made by the illustrious firm Godin situated in Guise in Aisne in the NE of France, these stoves really are a masterpiece. The skill involved in making something like this is just incredible. Suitable to bemused with coal or small pieces of wood or we have sold them in the past for Bio Ethanol. Grab it quick because our stoves, exceptional ones like this are going very quickly.

The door and lid on this were in a rather sorry state when we picked this up one balmy night in Lyon so we decided it was a shame to lose the lovely rich aubergine enamel on most of it so we just had those two pieces stripped and re-polished and we think it looks great. It has been convert4ed to bio ethanol and has a great window and you also get to see the flames flickering through the piercings, just lovely.

So this is only the third one of these tiled beauties we have ever had. Each one has had different coloured tiles, this one has green and blue tiles embellished with little Salamanders. The brightwork is unusually brass rather than the normal nickel plate and it really complements the design of the stove. This has been converted to use Bio Ethanol and is not suitable for any other fuel. It comes complete with the Bio Ethanol box. Grab it quick because the last one went in a day!.

This is a lovely Salamandre by Deville. The corner decorations are rose garlands and definitely give it a very decorative feel but not as over the top as some Salamandres. Sadly, as with a lot of Salamandres the insides were beyond restoration as a conventional stove burning solid fuel so we have converted it to Bio Ethanol only. To be fair most of our Salamandre are used as Bio Ethanol, burners as they lend themselves to Bio very well and with their lovely big windows you really get a great view of the flames. This one has a little trivet which fits on the top to keep your kettle on should you want, or mull your wine over Christmas.

Another little sweetie from Godin. Originally designed for coal burning but also suitable for solid fuel or anthracite. Not suitable for Bio Ethanol or wood as it is just too small. From the turn of the century, would be great for a small space.
Dimensions: H:57 W:25 D:25cms
I just love the design of these little stoves by Godin. Designed to burn coal they are suitable for solid fuel so cool or anthracite etc. Not suitable for bio ethanol sadly and really too small for wood. Great to warm up a small space and room to put your kettle on top.

This is a Franco Belge which is suitable for either solid fuel or wood if you have a chimney. However, don’t despair if you don’t as it would also be fine for Bio Ethanol. In fabulous condition.

Here is a bit of a stunner for all you Deco lovers. Something I have never seen before, let alone had one. It is Godin stove which can be used for solid fuel or wood if you have a chimney. It would also be absolutely fine for Bio Ethanol if you didn’t have a chimney (£55 extra). It’s a very subtle blue, almost grey enamel finish and I just love the design….that window….just fab. Grab I quick, we probably will never have another.

One of our most popular stoves in our most popular colour, what’s not to like? This is a side loading wood burner with a great size window. Fantastic design and a really good size. Grab is quick.

This is not a common colour really, a very nice olive green Le Non Pareil (without equal) which we have converted to Bio Ethanol only. Real Arts and Craft design on this iconic stove from one of our favourite manufacturers, Deville. We have stripped it out to be a Bio Ethanol only stove and comes complete with Bio Box.
Dimensions:H:57 W:59 D:35 cms
Well this is not something we often have, a really deep, emerald /sea green Chauffette in amazing condition. The enamel and the brightwork is in really fantastic condition and mostly we get these in much more subtle colours so this is a real treat. It’s a side loading wood burner if you have a chimney but if you don’t we can always convert it to bio ethanol. (£95 extra). Grab it quick.
Dimensions: H:52 W:57 D:34cms
Absolutely gorgeous Le Non Pareil by Deville (our favourite makers) finished in the most lovely dusky blue which is slightly darker than usual which just gives it a but more depth. Great wood burner if you have a chimney or could be converted to Bio Ethanol if you don’t (£95 extra for the box) so plenty of possibilities. Benefits from 2 windows, one in the front and one in the door of this Arts and Crafts classic.
Dimensions:H:57 W:59 D:35 cms
Lovely Pied Selle 405 ‘Noel’ finished in a really rich Aubergine enamel finish. This would look really opulent in the right setting even though it is quite a simple design. It has a lovely fan-shaped window which shows off the flames at their best. Great as a wood burner if you have a chimney or if you don’t , it can equally be used with Bio Ethanol which requires no flue (no fumes, no wood, no mess). What more could you want?

One of our best selling stoves, the iconic, Arts and Crafts inspired Deville Lilyver finished in lovely bright apple green enamel. Sadly the insides of the stove was too far gone so we have converted it to burn Bio Ethanol only. Great stoves for Bio as they have a good big window and are superbly made and just ‘work’. Comes ready to go with a Bio Ethanol box so all you need to do is take it home, fill the box, light it and sit back and enjoy.

Here is a stunning Gallia by Deville. These type of stoves (Salamandres) were originally made so you could take them from room to room (obviously not when they were lit) and were placed in the fireplace before the days of flue liners so they are on wheels. This particular one is finished in lovely rich green enamel and looks fabulous. It is suitable for solid fuel (not wood) or if you don’t have a chimney it would also be great with Bio Ethanol (£55 extra).
Dimensions:H:65 W:55 D:40cms
A lovely Le Non Pareil by Deville which had rather an unfortunate brown colour enamel on it so we have had it stripped and repolished to give this fabulous result. These are very popular stoves as you can see the flames from the front and through the door at the side. This is a wood burner but if you don’t have a chimney then it is also good for Bio Ethanol (£95 extra), so no mess, nor fumes, no hassle.

Gorgeous Deville Lily which sadly had rather sad enamel so we had it stripped and we have refinished it to this stunning gun metal finish. These are our best selling stoves understandably, great quality from Deville as you would expect coupled with a stunning design. Suitable for solid fuel (not wood) if you have a chimney but don’t despair if you haven’t as they are equally great with bio ethanol (£55 extra).

Stunning Deville Lily which is finished in the amazing green/grey/blue coloured enamel which is peculiar to France. So subtle and lovely that you can’t help but love it. This would go so well with so many different colour schemes. Suitable for solid fuel (not wood) if you have a chimney but also absolutely great with Bio Ethanol if you don’t have a chimney (£55 extra). If you love it, buy it quick, it won’t hang around.

This is the big brother of the Lilyver by Deville. Such a great looking stove, very Arts and Crafts really. The usual quality you would expect from these illustrious makers. Sadly the enamel was not good enough to keep so we sent it off to the strippers, then Tom worked his magic on and Lucy, under his supervision, blacked and polished it; a real family effort. It was worth it, looks great. Suitable for solid fuel (not wood) if you have a chimney and if not, it is also great with Bio Ethanol (£55 extra). Grab it quick.

Well this is a monster stove, massive. Very sadly the top is missing which would have lifted up to expose the cooking ring which you can now see. It won’t bother some people which is why we decided to restore it anyway as it’s just such an amazing piece. So you could do one of two things, you could use it with Bio Ethanol, sadly you cannot see any flames or you could abandon the whole idea of using it as a heat source and get a marble /slate/wood top for it and use it as some kind of very decorative storage. Alternatively you could forget the idea of the top and the heat and take the top ring out and use it as a a very expensive planter! Possibilities, possibilities. Use your imagination.
Iconic Chauffette finished in fantastic olive green enamel. These are great stoves which look equally at home in a traditional or contemporary setting. Side loader and only suitable for Bio Ethanol and comes complete with the Bio Ethanol Box so all ready to go.

This is another gorgeous Lily by Deville in everyone’s favourite colour, dusky blue. These are our most popular stoves for good reason. They are superbly crafted and stand the test of time, remember these stoves are around 90 years old and still they look gorgeous. They are designed as solid fuel stoves if you have a chimney, but if you don’t they are also equally great with a Bio Ethanol conversion (£55 extra). Don’t hang around if you want one, they never stay around long.
Dimensions: H:63 W:44 D:40cms
This is one of the few French stoves that can be used as a wood burner or solid fuel, or with a conversion, can even be used with Bio Ethanol (£55 extra for the Bio box). This is finished in sort of Air Force blue enamel and has some dints and dings to the enamel which gives it a slightly shabby chic look but it is still lovely, after all it is nearly 90 years old.
Dimensions:H:65 W:50 D:40
Lovely Pied Selle, I really love the design of these stoves, reminds me of Paisley design but in cast iron. They are decorative but not too ‘fussy’ to my mind. This is only suitable for Bio Ethanol, so if you want a lovely stove and don’t have a chimney then this is your stove. Grab it quick, they never stay long. Comes ready to go with Bio box.
Dimensions: H:45 W:57 D:35cms
Deville Le No Pareil, one of our most popular stoves, finished in a real apple green enamel with the twist of having the window frame finished in polished steel to match the door. We really like it, really suits it. This is a side loading wood burner but if you don’t have a chimney it can be converted to Bio Ethanol (£95 extra).

One of most popular stoves, a lovely Deville Le Non Pareil (Without Equal) in stunning dark forest green. This is a really rich green and a bit different from a lot of the Le Non Pareil usual greens. These are really popular because they are a great design, very Arts and crafts, and they have two windows, one at the front and the other in the door. This has been converted to be suitable for Bio Ethanol only so no chimney is required and the Bio Ethanol box comes with it.
Dimensions: :H:57 W:59 D:35 cms
Not a stove which we come across often, a Simplex solid fuel burner. In some ways, the design is less fussy than some but I really like it’s simplicity. As well as being a solid fuel stove, it is also great with Bio Ethanol if you don’t have a chimney. The enamel has been removed and the whole stove, polished and refinished to a gun mental finish so no restrictions as to what colour you can have in the room.
Dimensions: H:62 W:43 D:37cms
Very cute stove which was originally a wood burner (hence the name) but we have decided to convert it to Bio Ethanol. Side loader with a very intricate design.Comes complete with Bio Ethanol box.

Now this is something special, we have only had one before and that went off to Florida. Really stunning Deville Siberia Salamandre in that special dusky blue with a hint of green that only the French do. These were originally designed to be able to be moved from room to room (presumably not whilst still alight) as obviously they didn’t both with flue liners in those days. This is a sold fuel stove (not wood) or if you don’t have a chimney, it would work equally well with a Bio Ethanol box (£55 extra). Grab it quick, we may never have another.

This is a glorious rich green enamelled stove fy Faure Revin called Rapid. It is rather unusual in that the true ‘front’ has no window and the only window is in the door. It was missing far too much to use it as a conventional wood burner but will be great as a Bio Ethanol burner. You can take your choice of which was round you want it as you can see the flames through the pattern as well as the door. Comes complete with bio box so all ready to go.

Here we have a very Deco wood burner made by Magny Vernois in the Haute Saone. The enamel was in a very sad state so we have had it blasted and polished and we are very pleased with the result. Great as a side loading wood burner but could be used with the round bio ethanol box if you don’t have a chimney (extra £55).
Dimensions:H:46 W:42 D:31cms
Well we have never had one of these before. We picked it up from a little hamlet which was like something out of Deliverance. The guy was waiting for us outside his garage with his two dogs who were trying to intimidate a cat who was having none of it and standing her ground complete with arched back. For some weird reason it was full of loft insulation!! which we asked him to remove. Anyway, I digress, it is a front loading wood burner or if you don’t have a chimney, it could be used for bio ethanol (£55 extra). The enamel was a particularly horrible shade of brown so we had it stripped and this is just the beautiful result. Don’t hang around if you love it.

When we went down to the Rhone Alps we came across a few different stoves and this was one of them. It was originally an oven and cooking rings on top of the firebox but sadly over the years the dividing plate has been lost or broken so it is now an open space from the firebox but the cooking rings are still there. So it can only be used for Bio Ethanol but would still be great.

This is a lovely Godin Chauffette which has the most unusual brown enamel which has a green hue to it which makes it a really interesting colour. We thought it would be great in a moorish setting, sort of dark and brooding. Sadly it is only for Bio Ethanol as the box internally was too far gone for burning wood. Comes complete with Bio Ethanol box so already to go.
Dimensions:H:52 W:57 D:34cms
One of our most popular wood burning stoves. This is made by Pied Selle and the design always reminds me of Rennie Mackintosh with the roses in the corners and the geometric design. Side loader which can be used with bio ethanol if you don’t have a chimney/flue (£95 extra).
Dimensions:H52 W:53 D:35
Deville make some of the best stoves in our opinion and this is no exception. The quality of the work which has gone into making this stove is amazing. This is a top loading solid fuel (not wood) burner. If you don’t have a chimney they are also great with a Bio Ethanol box in it (an extra £55). Grab it quickly.
Dimensions: H:65 W:44 D:40cms
This is something a bit different to our normal stoves. A Marquisette in a sort of marbled brown enamel. Suitable for solid fuel though sadly no good for bio ethanol as the opening just isn't large enough.
Dimensions: H:66 W:45 D:47
Really rich deep blue Deville Lilyver which is a top loader suitable for solid fuel so great in smoke free zones or if you don't have a chimney, equally excellent for bio ethanol (£55 extra). This is a real Arts and Crafts design which would suit a lot of rooms as it is not as fussy as some others.
Dimensions: H:63 W:44 D;39cms
Lovely honey brown stove by Deville. Most suited for solid fuel as the loading aperture is quite small. Gorgeous big, art deco window to watch those flames glowing away on the cold nights, keeping you nice and snug. Can also be used with a bio ethanol box if you don't have a chimney (extra £55) Lush.

Caloria ‘Empire State’
This is a great example of the iconic ‘Empire State’ by Caloria. It is model no 92 in a lovely donkey brown/grey which would look great in many settings. Very deco. Amazing fire bricks in the firebox and great enamel with the odd chip you would expect of something of this age. Only suitable for solid fuel as the firebox just isn't really large enough for wood so fine for smokeless zones.
