$700

For Sale, in exceptionally nice condition....a fully functional "Country Charm" electric range, made in Arkansas by House of Webster. Webster began making these stoves in 1957, based on specs of an actual wood burning stove design created in 1875. Webster bought the former foundry where the plans were discovered, and they set about to make an electric version that would be practical for modern use where an antique appearance was desirable. House of Webster is still in business and does supply parts, though they stopped making the stoves in the mid 90's. This particular unit is a Model # S87, and based on the serial number was manufactured in 1991. It is 100% fully functional, even the clock / timer disguised as a coffee grinder works and keeps good time. It serves a dual purpose as a timed on / off control for an electric outlet on the side of the grinder, and also houses the switch for the built-in exhaust fan. It features the deluxe solid covers on the stove heating elements. Overall dimensions are : 36" wide...total depth is no more than 26"...total height at the very tip of the handle on the "coffee grinder" is 68".....cooking surface is 30" above floor. In my conversation with the gentleman at H.O.W., he stressed that these last years of production of the stove were the best of the line, with heavy duty controls and high grade silicone insulation for the internal wiring. This appliance has been lightly used and well cared for, is clean and has no negative issues. It is NOT "Mint Condition" or "Like New!"....but I do believe this is in as fine condition as you could hope to find one of these in. One point in particular that was brought to my attention by the fellow at Webster....the Temperature Gauge in the oven door is strictly decorative, and not defective as I had thought. I have numerous pictures of the stove if you should desire to see more. One last point, the stove is made of cast iron and quite heavy, somewhere in the 350-400 lb. range. New price on these unique and very solidly built stoves was in the $2,500 ballpark when sold back in '91.... ....all reasonable offers considered, shown by appointment only as Candlewood Lake is a gated community (about 7 mi. North of Mt. Gilead) and we are not full time residents. All legitimate inquiries for info or more pics will be promptly answered. Thanks for looking!!
