Please let me know if you have any difficulties with our rating system.Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question. Your late 1930's Roberts and Mander Gas Stove with porcelain enamel would have a current fair market or resale value of 150-250USD in excellent condition. The pink handles actually help to set this stove a part from numerous other cast iron stoves produced in the era, but the condition is what really aids in the value. As far as removal, if you would like sell the oven, you can call local antique shops to see if there is any interest, they don't always come out for things, but if they have the right buyer they may just put in the time. A local auction house may also come by to pick up the stove and sell it for you, which would be a win win for you. Otherwise scrapyards and places like 1800GOTJUNK or JUNKAWAY could remove the stove from the premises. I hope this information was helpful to you today.Best of luck with your vintage stove.Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.Thank You,Frank
