From the kitchen....


 Believe it or not, my mom cooked on one almost like this, till I was in school.  I think maybe 2nd, or 3rd grade.

What a cool stove. I love to look at old kitchens and all the gadgets and copper pots they had back then. Glad this stove brought back memories for you, Rose.

That was probably state of the art back then. Neat shot.

She's a beauty, for sure! My grandmother cooked on a wood cookstove until I was grown. I remember that hers was green. Lots of good memories there!

My grandmother had one of those, and that's what my mother learned to cook on. :)

I don't remember those at all, though there were plenty of kitchen ranges that were the focal point of any farmhouse kitchen, especially in winter.

This looks like the one that was in my grandmothers kitchen. This looks like it's in pretty good shape.

Hello,

It is a cool stove, I love the more modern stoves they have now.
Take care, wishing you a happy day!

I like the design of the stove where there is a shelf to place the salt, pepper and etc.

My Mom's was a black one, but I do remember it clearly. Also had an Aunt and Uncle that had one for many years after.

Wow! That takes one back in time! A great find that recalls so many memories.

We lived in Kentucky from 1953 through 1959 and about half the houses in that town this is what they cooked on so I have seen them and eating food from them many times but mother never had one

I remember visiting an older coupe when I was a kid and they used the wood burning stove.

My mom talked about her grandmother having a stove like this. Great photo.

harry said...

is this coal or wood burning? I can imagine scrambling some eggs on the top, but the challenge of baking seems beyond difficult

Kodak said...

I can't even cook on a modern stove. I can't imagine using one like this, but plenty of people did.

Judy said...

I love that stove, I would definitely cook on it.

ElaineH said...

An amazing scene with so much history! It looks like a stove that was built to last a long time.

Debby said...

I am on the hunt for an old gas stove this very minute. There are a lot of them tucked away in garages and barns. My problem? I am looking for one that has an oven big enough for my turkey roaster!

Susan Zarzycki said...

Yes, my mother had one in her kitchen! My, that brings back memories.💖
