Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Agate Iron Ware Cook Book: Agate Iron Ware Stands The Racket


The front cover features three children beating on an Agate pan with large spoons. The back states "Daily Menu. Boo, Hoo, Hoo! I want my food cooked in Agate Iron Ware." The back illustration is of a child standing on a foot stool painting a bust with an undressed child crying behind a stool. The trademark is on the portfolio, which leans against another stool. A large stamp indicates the pamphlet was sold by C.C. Richter and Co., Demark Stoves and Ranges, Lowville New York. Includes three pages of the "Two Thousand Styles and Sizes." No page numbers.
