With el­e­ments dat­ing to 1911, 1930, and 1951, the kitchen was in good shape. This owner up­graded cas­ing trim, added the cut-away doors un­der the sink, and re­placed con­tem­po­rary light­ing with vin­tage Art Deco fix­tures, play­ing up the 1930s look. Buck’s Stove Palace in Portland pro­vided the re­stored and retro­fit­ted Quick Meal stove.

op­po­site (top) A con­tem­po­rary dresser in Stick­ley style sits un­der a Gus­tav Stick­ley plate rack dis­play­ing cop­per and enamel plates from Art Crafts Shop of Buf­falo. The new, Stick­ley-in­spired bed is by Head, Heart & Hand. Nancy’s grand­mother cre­ated the lamp; a du­bi­ous fam­ily leg­end says it started as a spit­toon her hus­band found in a junk shop. The shade is from the 1920s. (mid­dle) The vin­tage Ja­panese gar­den lantern has its orig­i­nal, crum­bling or­ange pa­per.

Glossy green Mar­lite on the walls prob­a­bly dates to 1951. be­low The Quick Meal stove, re­con­di­tioned, dates to ca. 1930, when a green-and-white enamel com­bi­na­tion came into vogue.
