I have been wanting a vintage range for some time but it is hard one to fit the small space I have for one. Saw this piece at an antique mall and figured I could make my boring stove look like a vintage one. Not sure what the piece is called but it is the part on the back of the stove. It holds the timer and clock.
This is from Western Holly Range from 1947 according to the site where I found a photo of one. I saw another photo with this piece in white as it is here and the top was red. If I could get one like it I would rip out that cabinet and make it fit. This is porcelain on a fairly heavy gauge steel just like the porcelain signs of which people are so fond. Also used for enamelware and graniteware. Porcelain signs have the advantage of not fading in sunlight.
Anyway I did a cheap cheesy conversion of my boring stove into a cool retro stove kind of.
