Wood and Coal Stoves. Turn-of-the-century Stoves. Electric or gas conversion available.

Wood and coal cooking stoves were used as early as the 1840s and the now classic Full-sized range was developed by the 1880s. Most of these Classic ranges share a basic and efficient design including an easily adjustable burn time, simple clean out and clean up and an even baking oven. At the turn of the century these stoves were being produced by the thousands in hundreds of foundries across the country.  The American stove industry gained worldwide recognition and respect for the beauty, craftsmanship and efficiency of their Wood burning kitchen ranges. At the center of every home, they were used for cooking, heating, bathing and hot water.

The orange glow of the Base burner stove is beauty unmatched. A warm aura illuminates the room as a fire can be seen dancing through the mica windows and doors on three sides of the stove. An enchanting view of the fire is available at all angles. The classic design of its rounded body makes the Cylinder stove one of America's most beloved stoves. Its cylindrical shape offers the ultimate in heat distribution while using a minimum amount of floor space. The Pot belly stove is an American classic. Used to heat trains, depots and cars, Caboose stoves and Railroad stoves are fondly remembered. Potbelly heaters found a second home in public buildings and gathering places establishing these barrel stoves as the center piece of social activity in schools, in churches, town halls, meeting houses and the local general store.

Heating stoves available in many styles.

Dual Fuel Stoves. Gas Stoves. Retro Stoves. Vintage Stoves. Electric conversion available.

The Gas and wood combination range was first introduced as a wood range with a side car, a separate gas unit that attached to the stove. Combination stoves eliminated the need for a summer kitchen and gave the cook a choice of fuels. The Combination range represents the best of both worlds allowing the user to cook on a diversity of fuel sources. Gas stoves enjoy tremendous popularity. Cooking and baking is easy with Gas oven, gas burners, ample cooking space and built-in storage space. Homeowners choose from colors like gray, white, beige, green and blue. Built to last and beautifully crafted, these Retro cook stoves are highly prized as truly functional works of art.
