The Cleveland Co-Operative Stove Co.

Grand Home Appliance Co. Insulated Range

Our new old stove is a Grand, model 850, made by the Cleveland Co-Operative Stove Co., probably in the late 1940s. A comment on my Flickr account regarding the data plate led me to think about stopping by and checking out their premises. The address wasn't so far off the route from home to work, so I stopped by today.

It's not a terribly big factory. I haven't been able to learn much about the company. It doesn't help that "grand" is a relatively common adjective. Still, I'm sure I'll be able to dig up more around here, eventually.

Hi, I was just googling this stove company, and this popped up. We have a stove/oven in pretty good condition from this company.. We have one in our new/old home that was built in 1928... how do I find out the year of it and the value?? Thanks! Danielle
