These Vintage Stoves are currently valued on the retail market ( cost replacement ) for an average of 750.00-800.00, depending on where they are for sale at and the condition of the stove.
The Kalamazoo Stove Company (1902-1952) of Kalamazoo, Michigan operated with the slogan "A Kalamazoo ~ Direct to You." This was one of the first manufacturing plants to deal directly with the customer instead of employing the use of retail stores.
Kalamazoo Stove produced several million stoves and furnaces over its fifty year existence, 100,000 of these in its peak production year, 1937. That year, the name was changed to Kalamazoo Stove and Furnace Company.
Among the innovations in stove design that came out of this company were the oven door window, which allowed the user to see what was being cooked without opening the door, and a thermometer mounted on the oven door.
The fact that most of their models were powered by wood or coal resulted in the company's demise in 1952, with their customer base shifting to gas and electric models offered by other companies.
They will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction.
If you are thinking of selling, I would check with your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country. They may sell higher on the west coast, then say in the mid west or the south. So be sure to check your local area. This will give you an idea of what it goes for in your area, then you can decide to sell locally or at one of the online markets.
