Salesman Samples

 Salesman sample stoves were produced as miniature versions, in exacting detail, of actual full-size stoves for demonstration purposes to prospective customers. They are usually much larger than toy stoves. You may have seen toy stoves advertised as salesman samples. It's probably not deliberate, in most cases people just don't know the difference between them. The difference in size and detail make it easy to tell them apart.

The go to reference book by Dick and Joan Ford was used in pricing of all my small stoves. My prices are below and, in many cases, well below their low estimate.
