Just looking at this stove brings to mind many wonderful memories. As a small child staying with my grandparents, I would play on the kitchen floor or fill my coloring books at the table-- feeling the warm and comfort that only a child knows how to feel.
You are lookin at a "Spark" brand wood burning gas stove built by the Hammer Bray Company in Oakland, California, July 1921. It was their deluxe, state-of-the-art model when my grandfather purchased it for my grandmother. I do believe this perfectly functioning piece was designed to last forever!
The stove is in remarkably beautiful, original conditioin. It has two ovens--one with a broiler, four gas burners, and two wood burners. A rear manifold carries away all fumes through the single pipe vent.
