    I have never seen a stove from Germany . However it looks like a stove that was used to heat water for doing laundry . You could take the rings off the top and set a pot of water there to heat up faster . The sides from the way they are shaped would hold several sad irons in order to heat them . The one door is where you would put the fuel in . Coal or wood . The other door at the bottom is where the ashes were taken out . I can not give you any kind of value for it , but it is a neat looking stove .

    Hate to appear stupid, but what is a sad iron? For clothes?
    I'm sure others are glad I asked so they don't have to appear stupid!
