Lakeside was a Montgomery Ward & Co. brand name applied to a number of different products over the years, including stoves, bells, guns, tableware and even records.An Illinois-published Biennial Report of the Secretary of State, State of Illinois, for fiscal years October 1, 1902 through September 30, 1904, indicate the business office for Lakeside Foundry was at 618 W. Chicago Ave., Chicago, and was valued at a mere $2,500. The listed address became the site of Montgomery Ward's Catalog House in 1907; however, Lakeside Foundry continued to be listed at the same location until at least 1920 (Illinois Certified List of Domestic and Foreign Corporations for the Year 1920).In 1904, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania published a list of new charters of corporations that included a Lakeside Foundry in Erie, PA, accessible to Chicago via rail and water. Erie was a popular area for iron smelters due to the quality of raw material in the region, and the ease of transport to other parts of the country."LAKESIDE FOUNDRY COMPANY -- Erie, June 29, 1904. Capital, $650,000. For the purpose of the manufacture and sale of all kinds of castings, stoves, ranges, furnaces and heating and cooking appliances and carrying on such other business as pertains thereto."(List of charters of Corporations Enrolled in the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 1901-1903, Alphabetical List of Foreign Corporations)"Foreign" means the headquarters was located outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in this case most likely Chicago, Illinois.While there are no online records supporting this theory, it appears Montgomery Ward & Co. may have acquired Lakeside Foundry (of Chicago) for $2,500, with the intent of building the Catalog House on the property. Optionally, they may have already owned the business and simply relocated it to Erie around 1904.It is also possible the business was originally owned by the more widely recognized Lakeside Foundry of Detroit, Michigan, which manufactured engine castings for Ford Motor Co., but aside from the shared name there appears to be nothing else connecting the two. (There was also a Lakeside Foundry in Racine, Wisconsin; one in Indiana; and one in Canada. None appear related.)Illinois and Pennsylvania records last mentioned Lakeside Foundry in 1920, at which time the foundry building was apparently sold, renamed Lakeside Forge, and used to cast industrial parts of some kind (possibly railroad). Montgomery Ward may have sold this unit because of a national financial panic in 1920. The company lost 10 million dollars that year, and JP Morgan and the First National Bank of New York acquired much of their stock.For this reason, it seems likely the majority of stoves manufactured by Lakeside Foundry of Chicago were made between c. 1904/05 and c. 1920. Montgomery Ward may have continued using the "Lakeside Foundry" name for branding purposes after that date, however. Lakeside stoves manufactured after 1920 were probably made by either Estate Stove Co. or Rymer.Earlier castings, including iron bells dating to the late 19th-century, were most likely made at the foundry's riverside location in Chicago. The original business may have been a bell foundry, as the variety of articles available under the name "Lakeside Foundry of Chicago" in the 19th century is limited.It should also be noted that Montgomery Ward sold stoves, ranges and heating appliances manufactured by other companies for sale under Montgomery Ward brand names such as Windsor, Thorne-Windsor, and Sun, among others.Some of their early 20th-century suppliers included the Estate Stove Co., of Hamilton, OH, (later owned by Whirlpool) and Rymer Manufacturing (later called Dixie Stoves, which eventually became Magic Chef). Rymer, a Tennessee company, was involved in a lawsuit for selling Montgomery Ward a stove identical to one manufactured by a competitor, Anchor Stove & Range.Montgomery Ward also imported unbranded wood/coal-burning stoves from an unknown manufacturer in Taiwan.The first person who answered this question located the following ad printed in the Chicago Tribune on October 7, 1945:CastingsBrass-Bronze-AluminumSand Cast or Permanent MoldPrompt Service and DeliveryLakeside Foundry Service Co.39 S.

Lakeside Foundry of Chicago was a brand name of Montgomery Ward & Co. Their stove foundry operated in Erie, Pennsylvania from c.1904-c.1920, not in Chicago, as many believe (the corporate office was in Wards' Chicago Catalog House). According to their catalog copy, these stoves were made in their own factory; however, Ward also sold rebranded stoves made by Estate Stove Co. and Rymer, among others. The Oak-style stoves were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; this particular model first appeared after 1895, probably as late as 1904-1906. The name "Thorne" derives from Aaron Montgomery Ward's partner, Robert Julius Thorne, President, and/or his sons, who were responsible for Wards' day-to-day operation. The Thorne Oak is an attractive cylinder parlor stove made of cast iron and nickle, and valued around $350.00, depending on condition. Wards' products were utilitarian -- good quality, but not quite as old and lacking the resale value of similar parlor stoves made by top companies like Jewel, Andes, Glenwood, Round Oak (PD Beckwith) and others. The company sold the stove with a choice of three different fireboxes: one for burning coal, one for burning wood, and one for burning coal or wood. If you intend to use the stove for heating have it inspected and repaired, if necessary, by a professional specializing antique stove restoration. The Thorne Oak can be converted to heat with gas or electricity. If you intend to burn wood (or coal), is imperative the installation be made on a non-flammable surface, such as tile, brick or stone and properly vented to reduce the risk of fire.

I seen someone said that the stove may have been made by a women only foundry which is not true. No. Man. Fdry. Co. stands for North Manchester Foundry Company, it is not no man! I have recemtly purchased one at an auction and am having a difficult time finding info as well.
Research the State where it was made. There should be a foundry that has patterns that could make you the pieces that you need. I have an Atlantic made in Maine and could order a whole stove to be made if I wanted to spend about $ 7000.
Glenwood Ranges were made in Taunton,Mass. Originally called the Weir Stove Company, the firm was reorganized as The Glenwood Range Company in the early 1820's. The foundry and most of the buildings are now demolished.
King Stove King Hardware purchased the Lizzie Loman Stove Works in Sheffield, Alabama in 1905. The foundry was renamed the King Stove & Range Company. They produced coal & wood heaters, stoves, and ranges. In 1917, the Martin brothers purchased the King Stove & Range Co. from King Hardware. King Stove & Range Co. then bought the Florence Stove Foundry in Florence, Alabama. They renamed the foundry in Florence the Martin Stove & Range Co. They expanded their line to include hollowware and sad irons. A lot of collectors believe that King Stove & Range hollow ware pieces were produced in the Martin Foundry. The Martin Stove & Range Company produced quite a bit of hollow ware. Collectors know of a few toys, and the standard items such as ovens, skillets, griddles, kettles, long pans, shallow skillets, ham boilers, sad irons, and gem pans. Many Martin pieces were not marked. Once a collector knows the traits of the Martin pieces they are able to pick out their pieces. It seems The Martin Stove & Range Company quit making hollow ware in 1953 except for a piece or two that seemed to be made for special uses. In 1973, Martin Stove & Range and other companies, which had been bought over the years, merged and became Martin Industries. They are still in business today. www.martinindustries.com So far I havent been able to find out any more about it. I need a value placed on my model 200 befor I sell it
The H. Wetter Stove Co. was originally based out of Memphis, Tennessee as early as 1883. Around 1902, it purchased the old Perry Stove Works in South Pittsburg, Tennessee and moved it's foundry work there where it operated until around 1931 when the SP foundry was reorganized into the United States Stove Company after labor disputes and a deadly shooting in December 1927 were more than H. Wetter could take. The U. S. S. Company still operate a mill at Richard City, an annex of South Pittsburg, and nearby Bridgeport, Alabama. The old foundry at South Pittsburg was razed in 2003.

The King Hardware of Sheffield AL. bought out The Lizzie Loman stove works in 1905. The foundry was renamed King Stove & Range Co. In 1917 The Martin brothers bought out King Range & Stove Co and became Martin Stove Co. It may be that the Martin Stove Co still produced stoves under the name of King Stove up until the 1970's Not knowing the size of the stove or seeing a picture of it, it is hard to put a price on it. The price may range from $100 to over $1,000. I got this information from The Griswold & Cast Iron Cookware Association
In 1892, Canadian inventor Thomas Ahearn invented the "Electric Oven". The electric stove was actually showcased at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893.
I have a ranger cast iron stove. I believe the company was Southern Co-Operative Foundry Rome GA. I read where the company went out of business in1971. I also found a posting on e-bay that closed bidding in August this year. The only bid was $99 and did not meet the the reserve.
A stove. Hopefully, a gimballed stove!
The stove we call the Franklin stove was invented by Franklin in 1742 and was called the Pennsylvania stove by Franklin. The Franklin stove is just modern interpretation of that stove.
