I have never used the stove, it came with the house we bought and I replaced it with a new one when we moved in. It does work, but needs some tender loving care. When we purchased our home (dated 1915) an old kitchen came with it. I'd love to restore the stove myself and use it when we renovate our kitchen, but my husband wants nothing to do with it. We also have a huge vintage sink (6ft) that I will be selling, but that will be in time. The stove is a McClary, approx 1930-40's, white, 4 burners, all knobs in tact, double door oven.
