Alternative Name(s): Camp Oven

Portable electric stove made by Evergreen around 1930. It was used in Malvern, Victoria, around 1930 to 1950 by the donor's sister, who rented a house in Sudan Street, Malvern. The house had a gas stove. The donor's sister purchased this oven thinking it would be useful but she hardly ever used it. The donor's sister was the eldest in the family; she was a milliner and dressmaker and also took in boarders in Malvern.

The stove was collected from the donor's family's farm at Newham, Victoria.

Physical Description

Portable electric stove, green. Rectangular form, on four small feet, with domed lid. It is hard to ascertain if the white splatter is the intended finish. It is regular throughout and doesn't appear on the label but it is rough in texture and on the lid appears uneven and irregular.
