Toy stoves

Stoves started to appear in American kitchens in greater numbers in the 1840s. Toy stoves date from the same period. The toy stove evolved right along with the full size model with back shelves and nickel plating becoming popular starting in the 1870s.

The go-to Toy Stove reference book by Dick and Joan Ford was used in pricing these stoves. Most prices are well below their low estimates
