    This is a Prentiss Wabers Model 409 two-burner stove. When I saw the photos before I bought it I thought the paint was cracked and would need to be stripped and re-painted, but it turned out to be an all original green crackle enamel finish with black veiling. Based on information found elsewhere on this forum is was made in 1937.

    Here is a close-up of the paint, though much of the veiling appears to be worn off:

    Yup, I have a couple of those in that same color and texture. Kinda funky, but cool.

    Thanks for sharing,
