One of the great joys of social media is that it helps us discover all manner of midcentury products that we might otherwise never come across out in the wild. Case in point: Karlie’s amazing vintage Metters Cook n’ Clean oven and stovetop combination — it’s designed to sit totally on the countertop! Karlie — who lives in Australia — and I ‘met’ via the Retro Renovation Facebook page, where she shared this woddity wonder from Down Under — and then we emailed back and forth to get even more photos.
Hi there! Not much more to see in my little stove, but I have always loved the knobs and dials!!! It’s a split oven, with the grill and stove beside the oven!
The other magical feature is our original glitter wall vinyl tiles!
Mmmm glitter vinyl! So amazing — we love it, Karlie. We do see vintage tiles like this, New Old Stock, on ebay now and then. And remember the Lam-O-Tile, I’d love to know if anyone did something spectacular with that.
Of course, Precautionary Pam is wont to remind: Old materials in our houses may contain vintage nastiness such as asbestos and lead, etc. — get yee with your own properly licensed professional to assess what you have so that you can make informed decisions.
Thanks for sharing, Karlie — it’s fabulous to see the different brands and designs available across the big pond!
