There is an excellent permanent exhibition of Transylvanian ceramic heater tiles in Piaţa Huet (Sibiu) which, if closed, can be accessed by asking for help at the Astra Museum at nr.11 Piaţa Mica.

Here are some pictures of the museum’s exhibits which includes this tiled fully reconstructed sobă from Chişmed, Harghita County, built in the second half of the 19th Century:

Another reconstructed sobă is this model, from Drăuşeni, Braşov county, built in 1891:
