Old-Fashioned Stove

Has Breakfast Changed?

Can you imagine what breakfast would be like if you had to cook on an old fashioned stove? We can. If you look at this stove below, you’ll notice that not only is there a waffle maker, but a crank butter churn instead of a pump butter churn. There’s a coffee grinder on the top of the stove and a tea kettle as well. Breakfast clearly hasn’t changed all that much in the last hundred years or so.

The Monarch Company also known as the Malleable Iron Range Co. and the Dauntless Manufacturing Company made this stove around the 1920’s. Silas McClure and A.C. Terrell founded the company in St. Louis, MO. This particular color of stove was called “nice-green”.
