    Hey I have been having trouble finding any information on any of these stoves. Can anyone help me out?

    I know the companies of the regal is Richmond stove co and the other is reading stove works and Orr painter and co
    But that's it. The other is a mystery for me. And the two I know the companies of I can't find anything online about them. Only an old pic of the regal. Thanks for any info!

    The first one looks like a homemade stove using the arch of another. The grey Sunshine kitchen stove is from Reading Stove Works, guessing from the early 1920s. Not sure on the Regal 22, it appears to be missing the front parts. Try contacting some of the good antique stove shops online like this one: http://www.goodtimestove.com/

    Thanks for the info! The first one I took off brass legs and there are identical brass fineals on the arch and the body. And brass handles. Seems too well put together to be homemade but could be. I've never seen an arch on a stove either what do you think it could be off of? Thanks again

    I've seen cast iron arch tops on Lange, Morso and Jotuls, but not of welded steel. Maybe someone else has.

    Yea it's all steel. The arch too. It's very odd the whole thing.
