Medium: Print on paper
During the 19th century was the first period in which houses were equipped with cooking ranges and stoves, such as the Florence oil stove featured on this leaflet. Before this time cooking was done on large open ranges, and as a result took much longer. Rollins and Co’s stove are very carefully and even decoratively designed, with intricate detailing on the rims and surfaces.
