Click To Enlarge

We are pleased to offer for sale a wonderful early American tin Stevens and Brown toy kitchen circa 1872.  The best match we found to this fabulous miniature tin toy kitchen is on page 65 of the Stevens & Brown 1872 toy catalog (see photo #10).  Their kitchens were offered in eight sizes, and we believe this to be the largest size they made.  The Kitchen measures 19" wide and 9 3/4" tall by 6 1/2" deep.  There is also a wonderful old hand pump on the outside right of the kitchen wall that would have pumped water into the "sink" that is on the inside right kitchen wall (the pump handle has been replaced to look like the original).  The paint finish on this rare piece is all original with typical scattered loss and the gold stenciled flowers on the opening stove doors are still visible!  Included with the kitchen are 26 individual pieces of antique tin cookware and accessories, most of them original to the kitchen (see photo #3 showing 25 pieces - there is actually 1 more matching plate like the ones in the front row, it was under one of the others when we took the photo).  This wonderful early American tin kitchen has had some restoration; the shelf on the upper left side wall is a correct replacement and the handles on the large covered pot and the tea kettle are correct replacements done very nicely (see photo #7) and the pump handle.  On the back of the back wall upper center you can see where a decorative tin crest was attached but is now missing (this would have made the kitchen 12" tall as stated in the catalog), also the two burner inserts are missing, however two of the smaller plates fit perfectly into the openings (see photo #5 and #6) or you can just put the large pot and kettle on the stove as shown in the photos and they will cover the openings.  This early tin kitchen is a great find especially in this wonderful condition.  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS WONDERFUL EARLY AMERICAN TIN KITCHEN MADE BY THE STEVENS and BROWN MANUFACTURING COMPANY.
