The Zsolnay Store
# 312. A Zsolnay Stove. c. 1880's. Composed of multiple sectioned tiles, cemented together to form a complete unit. Comes apart in four sections. Size: 8' 4" tall. Footprint: app. 26" square. The style is Hungarian Renaissance Revival. Condition: edge loss in a couple of areas in which we do not have the small piece. There was a hole in the back for the stove pipe and that has been plastered over. All in all, this stove is in very good condition, it came out of a private apartment in Budapest and we had it packed and shipped by jet from there to the states. Each section is marked with the Zsolnay Factory marks and stove form book number 193. The glaze is a standard Majolica Glaze. Is it possible to use this stove again, I don't see why not, there is evidence of considerable smoke residue inside this stove, so it was used at some point in the recent past. The buyer is responsible for packing and transportation. P.O.R.
