Even older than Chrisj’s-they just don’t build things to last like this now!—NBC

    Can't kill the Monitor top. Mine is still going strong after 83years.

    That looks like a 1936 model.

    Our 1950’s Norge stove-still going strong, except for the temperature marks on the oven dial, which are worn off.
    The stainless steel top matches the 1920 stainless steel counter tops perfectly.—NBC

    Nice Stove!

    Chris, do you know what year the clock is from. I was thinking somewhere close to 1930 but am not sure. I bought the monitor top off the granddaughter of the original owner. She kept her grandmothers house which was built in 1929 with all of its contents.

    I can try to find out.
    I want to say they were given away as advertising during the early years, 1927-28ish? But I'm not an expert on the clocks. Does it still run? The clock I mean........... The CK machine you have from 1936 it's almost a given that it runs. :)

    I have a restored 1933 in my kitchen.

    The clock and the ck work perfect. Even the defrost function works.
