Here's a fabulous early old gauge plate from a "Round Oak Chief" stove. This oval metal piece measures 12 ¾” long and just under 9" wide. The metal is incised with the lettering and also some decorative swirls that really make this piece special.
On the gauge itself, there is an image of a Native American with the name "Doe-Wah-Jack" and "Stoves - Ranges - Furnaces" underneath. Then, under the temperature numbers, is the advertising that reads: "Estate of P.D. Beckwith Incorporated - Dowagiac. Mich." The glass is intact. The entire piece shows expected wear appropriate for the age of the piece.
This unique and very uncommon piece would make a bold vintage statement hanging on a wall in your country kitchen, or anywhere in your primitive country home décor ! A great old kitchenware stove gauge!
Note: Quoted shipping price is a high estimate. If your shipping cost ends up being less than amount stated, I promise to refund you the difference into your Paypal account.
