Kakelugn – Swedish Tiled Stoves
We still haven’t put the fireplaces into the new house. I looked to see whether it would be possible to have a kakelugn. Can I get a Swedish tiled stove here in the United States? How much do Kakelugn cost?
I found prices on three. One is $7,400, the one on eBay is $9,999.00 and the other is $25,000.00. That’s quite a range.
I found the website for Lindholm Kakelugnar. They have beautiful examples of Kakelugn.
Tiled Stove – Antique Fireplace
We have sold and built antique Swedish tiled stoves (kakelugn) for 45 years, in Sweden as well as abroad. Our excellent stock of antique tiled stoves range from 18th century handmade stoves with a shimmering glaze, to factory manufactured stoves from the 1860s to the 1920s.
Stove design varies between round, rectangular and columnar. Each one of the tiled stoves is designed to be placed, either in a corner, or against a straight wall. Heights vary between 180 cm and, approximately, 300 cm, or more, but may in most cases be adapted according to the requirements of the customer.
Apart from providing an excellent source of heat, the antique tiled stove is also an object of great beauty and a solid investment.
They sell Round, Column, Rectangular and Handmade Tile Stoves in every style from ultra modern to more rustic to Gustavian.

I think I like these the best.
They are in Magasinsgatan 61 A, 432 35 Varberg, Sweden. But, they “cooperate with a very skilled Swedish installer who takes assignments all over the World.”
They have no prices on the site. You have to contact them for pricing. I am pretty sure these are not inexpensive…
Austrian Kachelofen Stove
I found a price on one on Chairish.
19th Century Antique Austrian Faience Kachelofen Stove
Eight pieces; flamed finial above serpentine and bombe sections modeled with acanthus and scrolling foliage rocaille cartouches and ornamentation. Hinged brass door on firebox resting upon flat plate and four block feet. Vent opening inside cartouche on upper section.
This one is in Savannah, GA.
Kachelofen European Ceramic Stove
I found another one on eCRATER. This one is $25,000.00.
Antique Kachelofen European Ceramic Stove 19th Century Mag Featured
An antique Kachelofen (ceramic stove) from the 19th century.
6 FEET 5 INCHES TALL.
The same piece (in a different colour finish) was featured in the Vogue magazine (the sixth picture).
AMAZING condition for the age. No chips, cracks, or any damage whatsoever. Kachelofen are porcelain stoves used in much of Europe that are as exquisite as they are efficient. Radiant heat from these pieces are astounding. These pieces are easily certifiable and may be installed, as can be seen in the Vogue magazine article on a Thousand Islands mansion. It is the same antique stove with a different colour. The whole unit separates to 7 units for very easy transportation. It was originally purchased in a Swiss antique shop and imported by plane. Shipping is free by freight to Canada and the United States. For other countries, please inquire.
I had never heard of eCrater. It appears to be a sort of eBay.
eCRATER is both a free web store builder and an online marketplace. If you are a seller you can create your own free online store in minutes. If you are a buyer you can browse and search among millions of products. All eligible products are submitted to Google Shopping. You can also easily import your eBay products.
The development of the eCRATER began in the early spring of 2004. After many hours of hard work, eCRATER finally went live in its beta version in the early fall of 2004. Since then, we have constantly been adding new features while also trying to keep the original “clean and simple” look.
You can sell on eCrater for free.
You can still sell completely for free. How? If you receive an invoice from us, just do not pay it. We will not suspend your account for this. We will decrease your ranking in the marketplace or may completely remove your products from there and do not feed your items to Google Shopping. However your store will remain active and operational.
Kakelugn on eBay
The one I saw last winter is still on eBay: Kakelugn on eBay >.
Swedish Tiled Stoves are in the home of Karin and Carl Larsson, the artist. I posted about his paintings of the ceramic stoves, his home and looking for a stove of my own here: Swedish Kachelofen, Beautiful Ceramic Stoves.
Hybrid Mora Clock Kakelugn
I also found a hybrid Mora Clock Kakelugn.
Mora clocks are put into a lot of different cases, but this is unique. At least to me.
Vintage Danish Tall Case Clock Painted in Delft Kakelugn / Kakalugnar Style
Rare find — there’s only 1 of these in stock.
Vintage from the 19th century
Vintage Danish Tall Case Clock- Painted in the Delft Kakelugn / Kakalugnar Style
*One of a kind* Circa late 1800’s
Dimensions: 14″ deep, 24″ wide, 76″ tall.
This clock has been hand painted to replicate the Delft Style Kakelugn / Kakalugnar stoves.
This hand crafted clock construction style has been referred to as a “Lighthouse” clock.
It has been refinished and the internal workings have been replaced with a quartz mechanism. It has three chimes, adjustable volume, and sound on/off switch.
This clock is “half round”, i.e., is flat on the back and sits flush with the wall.
It has, on the back, what appears to be original shipping labels…
I bought a Mora clock on eBay.
So… lots of choices. It is possible to have one built here. But not inexpensive. Not a whim… Unless I find a deal on one on Facebook Marketplace.
