A vintage 1956 English Rose kitchen – including REVO oven

Ah, what a treat this is: An English Rose kitchen —  believed to be installed in 1956 — and including an amazing freestanding REVO oven — for sale on ebay in the U.K. Thank you, so much, reader KatieP, for the tip — you have a fantastic eye! And thanks to seller Chris for permission to capture all these photos for historical reference! While I have done several stories on English Rose kitchens, I have never seen and did not know that there was a matching oven. And that it is amazing looking!  I believe they were the most popular brand sold in Britain after World War II. I will include all the links to my story about English Rose cabinets at the end. Meanwhile, enjoy these photos, used with permission of the ebay seller.

      Tina, I do not sell anything here. The stories on the blog are about products available out in the world. In the case of English Rose cabinets, I have only ever heard of those having been used in the U.K.

  3. Joe Felice says:

    I like the twist the English put on our MCM look. But am I the only one who thinks these cabinets make the kitchen look like an airplane restroom?

      Interestingly, the factory in which they were made built Spitfires during the war…. they certainly have that streamline moderne look — which is meant to look like a freight train, or a steamliner, in motion….
