Most farm collectibles are carefully restored, displayed at an occasional show or parade, then taken to the barn where they're kept under tarps.

Have 1 of 2 return vents in stove room at the ceiling. If you turn them right up, the middle can start to glow red, you can put a kettle on the top, or cut the top off and add a hot plate.

Were there kitchens before there were cookstoves? Technically, yes, because the ancient art of food preparation took place in open hearths well before the birth of the stove in the late 18th century. Any place there was roasting or baking was, in effect, a kitchen, regardless of whether it was a multi-use room like the post-medieval hall, a dedicated wing, or even a totally separate building like a summer kitchen.

A wood-burning stove or wood burner or log burner in the UK is a heating appliance capable of burning wood fuel and wood-derived biomass fuel, such as sawdust bricks. Generally the appliance consists of a solid metal usually cast iron or steel closed firebox, often lined by fire brickand one or more air controls which can be manually or automatically operated depending upon the stove. The first wood-burning stove was patented in Strasbourg intwo centuries before the Industrial Revolutionwhich would make iron an inexpensive and common material, so such stoves were high end consumer items and only gradually spread in use.
Stoves have been manufactured for more than years, many well made and ornate compared to today's stoves. Since stoves are generally used indoors, many of these antique and vintage stoves are still around, free from rust and even functional, with basic maintenance. Whether the stove you turn up is an old cast iron model or a streamlined art-deco unit, there are ways even a novice treasure hunter can determine the age of a stove. Examine the stove closely to determine what heat source it uses: wood, gas, coal or electric.
Antique stoves are our passion. Good Time Stove Company restores and sells antique stoves, including kitchen cook stoves and vintage stoves for home heating. They are restored to be fully operational, efficient and beautiful.
