Thanks for the question! The market for cast iron stoves is generally fairly modest in that few people are collecting them and most are purchased for decorative use in homes. A Birmingham Stove and Range (Baron model 17) would generally sell for $300 to $600 depending on condition. I found several images from auctions (attached). let me know how I may be of further help to you and thank you!
