The Old Kitchen

I know what you mean, these old everyday items that people today pay loads of cash for, to sit them in the corner and brag on. What would Jeb say? I love the look of the old stoves, but couldn't live without my modern heater or stove.

Irony

I work for an auction house and find it slightly ironic that these simple, utilitarian, and probably homemade items like the chair and table sell for large amounts of money as "American primitive."
