We just moved into a new house and this is in the basement. Can anyone give me any info on it? It says "PROSPERITY" on it.

    My Grandmother had one exactly like this! Don't know much about it other than she loved hers and it baked an awesome apple pie. Thanks for posting!

    The center top section is a pancake griddle. I bet the stove still works fine as hers was trouble free in the 20+/- years that I remember.

    I found this: It's a Sears Prosperity stove, this guys have restored one very similar to yours and they probably know more about it:

    Also, It may be from the 30's or 40's, look at these newspaper ads:
