In 1975, Tom Hendricks bought the rights to the Findlay Oval cook stove and began manufactur­ing reproducti­ons of the high-backed design in a former chicken barn near Elmira, Ontario. It was the beginning of Elmira Stove Works, where ranges from the Antique line still closely resemble that original wood-burning stove. Now they feature concealed, state-of-the-art electronic­s, convection ovens, and range tops with a choice of sealed gas or cast or smooth-top electric burners in addition to convection and dual-fuel ovens. Larger models have a capacious warming oven. All are lavished with nickel-plated trim. (Or opt for copper trim, applied over the nickel, hand-buffed and lacquered.) For those interested in true authentici­ty—or who live off the grid—the Fireview line offers real wood-burning cook stoves in two sizes. Coordinati­ng refrigerat­ors, wall ovens, microwaves, and dishwasher panels come in a choice of colors and combinatio­ns. Elmira Stove Works, elmirastov­eworks.com 29
