    Thanks we are trying to decide whether to use it or what to do with it.
    I got an email back from a guy about the stove. He told me that it is a Model A that there are different styles of the Model A. However he did think that it was neat that it had white legs.......he has never seen one like this.

    This is actually a model or style 7141. It is the predecessor to the model A. If you take out the right, front grate, drip ring & burner, & look down at the front of the Thermowell housing, there's a little aluminum plate, that has the style number & serial number. There were some early model A's that had the lever on the side, but not many. Most all of them had all the controls on the front. The early A's had curved black legs similar, but not the same as this one, but most have strait Art deco style legs.

    A few of the other differences are, the model 7141 has a cast iron griddle, a smooth flat cook-top, six headed daisy burners & stove colored more shapely curved legs. The model A had an aluminum griddle, a ribbed cook-top, four headed daisy burners & straighter less curvaceous black legs. There are other internal & mechanical differences, but they aren't readily apparent.

    I have an ivory colored stove like this, & my thumb latches are green instead of the more common red that this one has. The burner grates on this one appear to be from a model A, because all the other I've seem like this one had different & heavier grates.

    reall id like to ask 'pooka' if he would happen to know the value of his own stove as it seems i too have the exact stove as he has, green thumb an all. Also have you any idea the year of this stove?

    I'm terrible about setting a value on my stove. I paid about $50 for it, but I had to rent a truck & drive 100 miles each way to pick it up, so add that to my cost. My stove was also in need of some rehab & replacement of some broken parts. It still isn't done. Condition is really a big factor on value. A stove can look pretty good on the outside, but need lots of work on the inside. If I had to pick a number out of the air, I'd say from one to four hundred dollars, but sometimes you can't give them away. It might be worth more if it's in excellent condition, but you have to find just the right buyer.

    As for when it was made, mine was made in 1935 as far as I can tell. If you look as the aluminum style/serial number tag on the front of the Thermowell housing, the first digit of the serial number is the year built from what I've been told. Chambers stoves were made from about 1910 up to the early 80's, but most of them you see are from the 30's up to the 50's.

    To those of us that have grown to love these stoves, it can become an obsession, & one just isn't enough. My model 7141 is my second stove. My first one is a somewhat smaller & rarer 1935 model 74 that I bought from the family of the original owner for $250 a couple of years ago. It was in excellent shape, & only required minor adjustments & tweaking to make it useable. It is my everyday stove at present.

    If you need more information, there are two websites with discussion groups that I'm a member of, that are a treasure-house of collective information amongst it's members. here are their web address's.
