Hi Chowhounders. I have a vintage stove dillema that I need to resolve asap. There's Royal Rose 36" from the 50s (4 burners, w/ proper oven & storage sides) that resides in an apartment my parents are renovating. It's been in the place since at least '55 and has basically never been used (i.e.: in perfect condition). I would love to move it into my place but it's the wrong size, & I live in a rental so no renovation lies in my immediate future.
Also: someone gave me a tip on Kaufman Studios in LIC.. a place that buys such appliances for movie props, etc. If anyone here has heard of or used them, word on that would be appreciated as well. Thanks!
