Not that we are aware of.

The challenge will be gathering correct and meticulous measurements.  :)

Regarding Catalog Dating:

As more and more Catalogs surface, some of the time frames are falling into place.  For example, Supplementary Catalog 3839 is solid, because we have dated Pricelists to prove it out.

It is helpful to keep in mind that Catalogs were NOT necessarily published every year.  The Earliest, like Catalogue No.6 above, may have been every 2 to 4 years, or longer.   

We do have some evidence on dating, as Atlanta Stoveworks did have a Catalogue #3 (Circa 1897), and #5 (which was 112 pages and released to cover the years 1889-1890), however, Catalogue #6 above is a much smaller version, with fewer pages, and I suspect it is a special Pocket Catalogue.  So, only time and patience will help to figure it out. (and lots of research!) Is this #6 a Pocket Catalogue?   or not.
 
Edited to add info:

Snip #2 which shows Georgia Stove Works Catalog #2, July 13, 1895. Hmmmm... wonder if numbering was sequential thru out the changes in ownership?

Below is snip #1 from a periodical dated April 22, 1899 which indicates a 10 page pocket catalog, could this be it?

I find it interesting on what it does not show....no toy cookware. One would think that if toy cookware was made it would have been advertised with their toy stove. But who knows what the next catalog will reveal?

I saw one of these for sale once on Craigslist. It was about an hour north of Birmingham. I never went and checked it out, though.

If I remember correctly, they were asking in the ballpark of $500 for it. Plus it was in very rough shape.

To all that have contributed to this collection of catalogs I would like to personally thank each and energy one of you!  Thank you!  I am a new collector living in Georgia and figured it would be easier to collect BSR hollow ware.I refuse to use Facebook (personal choice), so looking for other viable methods of obtaining everything I can on this foundry.  Again,  thank you all for this amazing website and BSR information.

Hello Ron,

You are very Welcome!

We continue to accumulate information and I have a lot of updates and additional information pending upload...

This is a Public Board, as research on ASW/BSR is 'newer' and we were moving at lightning speed.

There is also a 'Mirror Board' on the Members Only side of our Forum, which contains much more information.

Additionally, WAGS members have access to a Foundry List and other resources.    :smiley:

Welcome to the WAGS Forum!
