I bought an Acorn about 15 years ago. It is in pretty good shape. I would also love to get any info possible. My stove resembles a 1934 Barstow or Roper. It is gas fired. Thanks.

I picked up an abandoned acorn gas stove.
Is there any further information on where to find out more about them?

Thanks for the response - I will check it out. Maybe they manufactured the gas stoves too.

I see that some of you have some experience with tracking info down re: old renfrew stoves. I have a Renfrew cookrite stove that was built to burn both coal & wood. i have been trying to date it. anyone have any information that might be helpful?

Is the Acorn related to the "Chateau". I just purchased a Renfrew Machinery Company Ltd "Chateau" edition stove serial #93698. I know it was my great-great grandmothers at one time and an old bachelor bought it from her and used it until Apr 2008. It has all the cream enamel on it, all the handles on the burners, doesn't have the triangle shaped burner grate crank, and I would like to find one. Also some of the inside cast inserts need replacing. Can anyone help me with this.

I have a Renfrew Acorn and am having it rebuilt by a company near Kingston, Ontario. Email me if you want more details. Cost to nickle plate it and replace all worn parts and bring it to like new condition suitable for insurance is $1400.

I do not have an account with country Life but I would like the name of the company that is rebuilding your stove. I have a Renfrew Acorn too. Thanks.
