Cast Iron Stoves and Ranges etc / Findlay gas stove
« Last post by le redwitch69 on September 18, 2018, 08:58:30 am »
Hi, I bought a house that had this stove as a kitchen appliance. (see picture) I used it for the last 5 years but the oven was not safe as it often backfired. I finally decided to go electric and now i'm trying to sell it. Any idea where i can post it and how much i can reasonably get for it? thank you very much.
P.s. i live in Quebec province
Could well be, the fact there's an eagle on the front likely says American.

How you clean it for reuse will be up to you. Won't fault someone for sandblasting a stove as trying to use typical non-destructive methods used on cookware would take some time. Just be careful tearing it down, depending on age, asbestos paste was used for sealing up the air gaps. Use all appropriate measures and do it outside.
On another forum I frequent, someone suggested Huntsman as a potential brand, though the only similarity is they used a very similar eagle, and a few stoves that I found on Google image searches of Huntsman stoves...
Unfortunately I saw nothing under the lids or inside the door. No markings visible anywhere on the top or sides, but I haven't looked under the entire thing yet. There's a "swing" surface that the lids go into, than can be swung to the side, exposing the whole top surface. I'll look under it and get a better look at the door insides when I get it around back.
Check inside the door, under lids and such, see if there are any makers marks. There have been older stoves made with a similar pattern on the sides, which makes me think this one is later.
I found this

today, and was wondering if anyone had any info about it, with regards to cleaning and restoring it, as well as who might have made it. I've been looking for a stove just like it, and while this one is pretty rough, I'd like to show it some TLC.
Everything Else Cast Iron / Made in Canada history

"Made In Canada", still seeing people trying to date Canadian iron and products in general using this 1960 rule - please don't do it and please let people know it's not the case.

"Made In Canada" actually started in the very early 1900's, it was a battle cry due to the United States manufacturing and sales processes after a small financial depression around 1900. US salesmen started invading Canada to hawk their iron wares. I'll get into it later but "Made in Canada" was never forced upon companies in Canada - but it did help get better sales. Made in Canada by Canadian labor. The attached image is from 1919. Now when companies started stamping or labelling their products is anyone's guess. McClary started doing it on GSW products in the early 1930's.
General Discussion for Hollow Ware / Findlay skillet with Lisser ghost mark

Lisser wasn't a foundry, but either farmed out or it was created as a retail product - likely by Findlay Brothers. We aren't sure of the dates on these pieces, but it's assumed 1930's to the early 70's when Findlay's Ltd closed.

Just to add the info from the fb group.

Crowe's Iron Works. Established in 1868 by John Crowe, and and ran at least into the 1970's.
