Model: All-White Deluxe Model A
Approximate Age: 1936
Made in: Shelbyville, Indiana
Backsplash Height: 54.5″

This deluxe model A is a scarce gem. All white, with a rare, original chrome top, backsplash with premium nickel-plated insert that holds the timer, light shade and salt and pepper shaker. It also features all-white handles, white thermostat dial and white-on-chrome thumb latches and even original chrome art deco legs. This one-family stove was uninstalled in January 2023 after 88 years of service!
The model A was made from 1936 – 38. Chrome plating for stoves began in 1934, so this was an unusual feature at the time (anything shiny and silver you see on a stove before 1934 was nickel, not chrome). Some have debated whether this was an experiment for the eventual chrome tops for the model B. I’ve come across 5 of these all-white models over the years, and one black one.
This is the first all-white and chrome model A I’ve offered for sale!
Comes with the original salt and pepper shakers as pictured.
