A friend gave me this stove. She used it for one heating season and decided it wasn't for her and bought a wood stove.

What a great stove. My guess is about 1890-1900.
I love the thermometer in the oven door. What could be
easier ?
Looks like it is in great condition.
Does the word "gave" mean free ?

Are you going to use it? Sure would be great.

I'm moving this thread to the "Hand Fired" forum, a more appropriate spot for it.

Very cool looking stove. Made in my hometown of Royersford, PA. Must have been gone by the time I was growing up in the 70's. I never knew there was a stove mfg there and it isn't that big of a town that I would have missed it.

Yea, She told me back in Aug. that she was selling it for $600. She e-mailed me last week and asked if I still wanted it and I told her I didn't have the money right now and she said come and get it for nothing.

Nice unit, I would say the absence of a water font has preserved it. I grew up whith a kitcken ranger similar to this with the addition of 4 gas burners on the right side. My parents used it also to help heat the house, they always had to use the living room parlor stove along with the kitchen range to keep us warm. I believe their design was mainly cooking and what came off as additional heat was a bonus.

Woo'ncoal,
Yes the childhood range was very similar (to your photo) we had 4 lids on the wood and coal side the gas cooling option was on the same side as yours. They converted the kitchen range to kerosene when I was in 5th grade, from a retro fit kit. Two years later my father spent some time in the hospital and my mother had a furnace installed and gave the great kitchen range to the plumber that put in the furnace, they got a modern gas range to replace it.
