Dream Stoves: Restored 1930s Wedgewood in Mt. Washington

Anyone who knows me, my clients in particular, know that I literally go nuts the moment I see a vintage Wedgewood or O’Keefe stove. When I see these beauties from the 1920s-1950s, it tells me 2 things: 1) this homeowner has great taste and 2) this homeowner loves quality and character.

And, it turns out that I’m not alone in my obsession. The folks at AntiqueStoves.com and DreamStoves.com have developed somewhat of a cult following with their extensive collection of stove porn and tips for DIY’ers who want to restore on the cheap.

It’s my dream to have a restored Wedgewood, but at $4000-10,000 a pop, I’m gonna have to take a few more cooking classes to justify that investment.
