Touching up chrome on a 1950s oven
Hello all:

On one corner of the stove the chrome is peeling
and blistering. I am trying to find a repair kit for it. I searched
internet but could not find anything.

Any ideas?

Vernes Chrome Plating in Los Angeles | Triple Plated Chrome | Rechromed Bumpers, Chroming and Powder Coating
you should be able to find a few companies like this one.

I don't think there is any shortcuts.

There is no brush on or spray on quick fix. It will need to be stripped and replated. It will never hold up with the heat if you try it any other way.
