If you are a retro buff,Elmira Stove Works is a resource for you. A family business for three generations up in Ontario, Elmira Stove Works started as a supplier of stove parts for nearby Mennonite families and soon began making their own stoves. Now they make high end stuff with all the old designs.
Elmira Stove Works has two lines: Antique and Northstar. The Antique line seems to have broken links, but the Northstar is a full fledged line of stove ($4,000), hood ($1,100) and fridge ($4,000) that all come in multiple colors, retro style and brand new innards.
This is expensive stuff, but about on par with other antique/new appliances we have seen. Elmira says that each piece is made to your specifications, and at these prices we believe it. (Via Popgadget)
