Hi Bob,

Did your Mom's 1953 stove have a sidearm hot water heater?

Morning Miss LyndaLou.....Yes the stove has a well in it...Left rear corner...The Stove was bought for my grandmother...1953 who used it all her life...then it belonged to my mother who used it for many years...I inherited it when my mother passed away in 2005. I had to sell the house,(my grandmother's/mother's) and chose to sell the stove to the new owners....Both were very hard decisions...The new owners love it!! So in a way a part of my mother & grandmother is still in the house....I would love to have a biscuit that my Grandmother cooked in that oven.....

Not that I recall Bill......The stove was bought very soon by after my mother remarried in 1952....The new groom wanted to impress his new MIL...So 1953 is the year I think it was purchased...I wouldn't think any later than 1954

The movers have had my range in their storage for about a month, but did not tell me it arrived.

I had them uncrate it, and saw it for the very first time yesterday!

It is absolutely gorgeous! I can not say enough about the renovation job they did on this range before they sold it to me!

It looks like a brand new appliance and just gleams at me. The original price tag from the vintage appliance shop was on it.

I paid 1/2 of the original asking price! I could not be more pleased.

If anyone would like to know about the renovator, I would be more than happy to recommend him.

It looks like the picture posted on page 1.

Do you want new pictures?

No, I'm the strapping young man on the right "pitchers".

Wow! I'm impressed, Jeekinz! (He's the one I thought was hot!) But to stay on topic, he's right. The pictures make this thread awesome. When I get home, I'm going to take pics of the old appliances I have, although they are nothing as cool as the ones already pictured here.
