Customer Question
Hello, I have what...

Hello, I have what I believe is some type of hot water stove used for laundry. It is cast iron,and was manufactured by "Abram Cox Stove Co Philadelphia,Chicago. The writing in the casting says Novelty No. 10a. I don't know much about it other than it was manufactured sometime around 1889-1917. Any information as to exactly what it is and if it has any value other than looking pretty darn cool. Thank you.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I can think of. It's stamped pat. pending. Also, I think it was made earlier rather than later, as from what I researched online, it was made before the company moved to Pa.

Hi. I don't have an access to customer accounts. That's something that is between you and JustAnswer. Since you don't have a membership, I can tell you that you will be charged for your question. I just don't know how much.

.

If you'd like I can send this to customer service so they can tell you just how much the charge is.
