I’m not sure how often I could call a1930s stove futuristic, but if there ever was one, this is it! Very unique design for an apartment stove from the Brooklyn brand Waterman.

From the late teens to the early 30s, apartment stoves were a way to accommodate crowded urban life. A small roast could fit in the oven and the stove top has three burners for cooking. The oven compartment has a separate burner for broiling, too.

Great today to add a bit of panache to small homes or patios.
