The Lakeside Foundry operated from 1904 to about 1920. The stove is 100 years old, give or take.
Montgomery Ward owned Lakeside Foundry of Chicago (the foundry was actually in Erie, PA) from c. 1904 until c. 1920. The 295 Sun is a cast-iron laundry stove, designed to burn either coal or wood. The value of your stove depends to a great extent on its appearance and condition, but typically runs between $50 and $200. For more information, see Related Questions, below.
You are probably talking about a Glorious Windsor stove manufactured by Lakeside Foundry of Chicago, a company owned and operated by Montgomery Ward between c. 1904 and c. 1920. The foundry was actually located in Erie, PA, not Chicago, but the headquarters was listed at 618 W. Chicago St., the address of the Montgomery Ward Catalogue House. 101 A is a model number, not an address. Depending on the condition of the stove, its value is approximately $175 - $300. If the stove is in excellent condition, you may want to have it appraised before selling (if that's your intention). For more information, see Related Questions and Related Links, below.

Lakeside Foundry of Chicago belonged to Montgomery Ward & Co., and was in operation from c. 1904 until c. 1920; however, other manufacturers, such as Estate Stove Co. and Rymer also made stoves for the mail order company. There were many different models of Windsor stove made at different periods in the company history, but the Lakeside brand may have been discontinued when the Erie, PA, foundry was sold c. 1920. There were no comps on the Bellwood Windsor available; the only one listed was unsold at auction.
Yes. Your bell was manufactured for Montgomery Ward, the giant mail order retailer, around the date marked, but probably not by "Lakeside Foundry of Chicago." Lakeside is a Ward's brand that was used to identify many different types of merchandise -- from guns to records -- manufactured for Montgomery Ward by well-known companies. Ward had a policy prohibiting their suppliers from placing their own brand name on products made for Ward. The origin of your bell is uncertain; however, there has been some speculation that at least some of them were made by C. S. Bell, of Hillsboro, OH. There are no contemporary imitations of that product. Lakeside Foundry of Chicago was actually located in Erie, PA, but was owned and operated by Montgomery Ward (of Chicago) c. 1904-1920, which is much later than the date on your bell. The Pennsylvania foundry made cast iron stoves and related items.

Lakeside Foundry of Chicago was a brand name of Montgomery Ward & Co., but the bells were manufactured by outside companies. Ward opened the real "Lakeside Foundry of Chicago" in Erie, PA, around 1904 and used it to manufacture cast iron stoves and related items until approximately 1920. To the best of my knowledge, none of the bells were made in that location. If your bell is undated, but says Lakeside Foundry of Chicago on the yolk, it may have been manufactured sometime after 1886 (those and earlier editions were apparently dated). If the bell is stamped "Crystal Metal" inside, there's a good chance it was manufactured by C. S. Bell Co., of Hillsboro, OH, sometime between 1887 and the mid 1890s. Other possibilities, beginning in 1895, would be the Globe Furniture foundry, which was consolidated with American Bell & Foundry in 1899. An AM or AMB stamp anywhere in or on the bell would indicate it was manufactured sometime between 1899 and c. 1920, with the greatest production years around the turn of the century, c. 1900-1905. Wards generally didn't allow their suppliers to include maker's marks, however, so lack of notation doesn't rule anything out. The estimated value of the bell is $100-$300, depending on condition.

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.

Montgomery Ward owned Lakeside Foundry of Chicago (the foundry was actually in Erie, PA) from c. 1904 until c. 1920. The 292 Jack is comparable to the 295 Sun made by the same company, and is a cast-iron laundry stove, designed to burn either coal or wood. The value of your stove depends to a great extent on its appearance and condition, but typically runs between $50 and $200. The average price for this stove in good condition seems to run around $100. For more information, see Related Questions, below.

According to the American Bell Association International forum, this bell is probably worth $200-300, depending on condition. Lakewood Foundry of Chicago was owned and operated in Erie, PA, by Montgomery Ward c.1904-1920. The foundry primarily made stoves and related cast iron parts. Bells bearing the Lakewood Foundry name are believed to have been manufactured by a third-party, but branded for sale through Wards, Sears and other retailers. The origin of your bell is uncertain because Montgomery Ward prohibited foundries from including their mark on the product; however, if the words "crystal metal" are stamped anywhere on the bell, it may have been manufactured by C. S. Bell Co. of Hillsboro, Ohio. There were a huge number of foundries operating during the "iron age" that contracted each others services as needed. This makes tracing the foundry responsible for creating your bell difficult to impossible.
