Thinking of buying a new stove? Not finding what you want? Step back in time to January 12, 1927 to a small store south of San Francisco along the Peninsula that sold stoves by Tappan.

If either of these guys try to sell you one of these…think twice. It’ll be a real pain trying to find parts.
Tappan appliances was founded by W.J. Tappan as the Ohio Valley Foundry Company in Bellaire, Ohio in 1881 selling cast-iron stoves door-to-door. The company relocated to Mansfield, Ohio in 1889 and was renamed the Eclipse Stove Company before being renamed the Tappan Stove Company. It was acquired by Electrolux in 1979.
Tappan claims several innovations, including:
▪ 1920s all-porcelain range available in various colorsI'm guessing that this fellow is the boss. His shoes are shined.
▪ 1955 the first microwave oven model for home use.
▪ 1960s electric ignition for gas ranges
▪ 1965 single unit conventional range and microwave oven.
I'm guessing this fellow is not the boss. His shoes are not shined.
And I'm guessing that most paper doll lovers would be thrilled to find one of these cut-outs.
