The wife and I bought a house in Crestline, Ca from the daughter of the original owner/builder.  What started as a 1bedroom cabin he built into a 3 bed house, beginning in the late 1930's.  The range was reported to have been bought from the Wrigley (chewing gum) family in Lake Arrowhead, Ca.  We use this range daily for family meals.  With 2 main burners, 4 medium burners and 2 warming burners, main oven, 2 side ovens and warming box, there is enough room for even my Italian grandma to cook a Christmas dinner.....we hosted 4 families for Christmas and there was never a hiccup. My wife and the other wives sure put it to the test.

14 game hens, mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted sweet potatoes, stuffing and what not.....good time to be Italian 😍

My mom had a range similar to that when I was young. I wish I had one now, they cook great.

That is a serious stove/oven. A real beauty. It should last just about forever,it looks like it's just getting broken in.

When I saw that in the other thread, I thought what a masterpiece! That stove is sure something to behold and treasure.

WOW. I bet that stove might cost more now that the cabin cost when built. Awesome.

I was remodeling a kitchen last year and the homeowner called someone to pick up his stove. It was no were as gorgeous as yours Bill, but was similar in dimensions.

He did not get any money for it, he just wanted to donate it, since they were coming to get it out of the house for free.

I went out and had a short discussion with the guy and asked how much could they possibly give him at a scarp yard to make it worthwhile for him.
He said, oh no, I restore these. I usually put out $500 and get back $2000 to $3000.

Don't get rid of that stove Bill, just make sure the guts are in top shape.

More like $15,000 for a stove like that today. Look it up,they have modern stoves that copy that stile.

We have access to natural gas now but have been propane users in the past.  Our heat in Alaska was wood and oil but our water heater, cloths dryer and stove were propane.
