  1. Oh my, now you are bringing back memories. I think I had one of these little stoves as a girl. I remember the red knobs and the oven opened up just into empty space inside it.
    How fun!

  2. Dictionary: The stove as the chief cooking device, taking the place of the fireplace, dates only to around the mid-19th century with the widespread use of wood-burning or coal-burning cooking stoves. This one shows being well used in it’s time is what makes it stand out. Brings a smile to my thoughts thinking about the tea parties it helped the little girls give to their friends and family.
