Need some help getting rid of a Wedgewood range

My house came with a 30s (?) Wedgewood gas range. Here's a terrible photo:



It works.

I know these are collectible and it's worth a few dollars ... but I can't find the model number and I'm not sure where to advertise it.

Any hints about where the model number might be located? Craig's List a good place to sell it?

Thanks!

1. You might contact a restoration business

They might buy vintage stoves for refurbishing and re-selling. They should at least be able to tell you where to find the model number.

Google had this article that lists businesses in various US areas:
http://retrorenovation.com/2011/11/04/13-places-to-buy-restored-vintage-stoves/

Several vintage Wedgewood models here:

I found this article, too, and I thought the range in the photo looks like yours (check out the knobs and drawer/door handles)
http://www.slate.com/articles/life/food/2009/08/this_old_stove.html

I love vintage appliances, and I dream of someday having a stove like yours!

On edit:
This one looks kinda like yours (from what I can see). And the site has a "what's the value of my stove" link, too.

3. Thanks for the links!

Seems I was way on the low end of how much to ask for it; doubling what I had in mind would still make it a bargain!

5. beautiful

Question: do you worry about grease spots on the brick? Or is it sealed somehow?

6. No - I want them to get dirty and aged

Long story, but the original brick wall (which I LOVED) had to be replaced and I'm hoping this one gets 'aged.' Upside to the new wall is I have more counter space (the Aga is 37" wide; a weird size).

10. Yes, it does!

I don't have the model number at hand, but apparently it's dual-fuel: gas (natural or LPG) and wood. Has all its parts.

Here's the model plate:
