Hello,

Your Phillips and Buttdorf stove was made in Nashville, Tennessee between 1903 to about 1916. This time of year is a great time to be selling these as many people still use them for the winter. They had many models of stove and there is no one more valuable than another (actually, the saleman samples miniatures are worth more than the full size stoves!). This stove would have a value of $250 (don't take less than $175.00) if you were to put it on Craigslist for sale and much less if you were to give it to an antiques auction (most don't want them), about $40 there for a value. It all helps greatly if you are in a region where you get a true winter in the next few weeks. I am in Maine and stoves are selling like hotcakes here.
