Spicer's & Peckham's Coal Cook Stove
The display reads: Coal Cook Stove Manufactured by Spicer's & Peckham Rhode Island 1881 This cast iron stove is known as a "brick-set" range. It was designed to be installed right in the fireplace. This style was manufactured beginning in the late 1870s, and production ceased about 1900. It is interesting to note that all identification on this stove is "stamped" on bolted metal plates. Nowhere is the name of the manufacturer cast directly in the metal, which was standard industry practice.

chestnuts roasting on an open fire
you can lift out the cast iron round and put a pan directly in the fire (great for wok cooking too!). this old chestnut roasting pan we found years ago at papie's house is being put to great use now that it's cold. we have the cast iron stove going morning and night and that is where we are cooking all of our food. it's a learning curve (banana bread with burnt top) that i look forward to tackling this winter.
