Now Cheri...if we kept it all...but then again... ; ) This is an awesome mixer. I believe the old electric butter churns were similar. I've only found the bowls (jars) of similar items, never the appliance. I'm jealous! Great color, too!

Mark, I didn't know...now I'm going to have to see it. I look for stuff like that in old and new movies all the time.
And you of course, know how valuable old advertising is in establishing what a device is, what it should do, and how it should look. I love looking at old magazines and catalogs for that very reason. Welcome to the group!

If members want to see some cool old household and kitchen appliances, see the new movie "REVOLUTIONARY ROAD". It's set in the fifties and has some great props in the background.

Rescue, I'm glad you joined! Show us what you've collected! And I have to agree with Diane...old appliance collectors have a penchant for nuttiness, and an ability to imagine we can resurrect an old box of parts! Apparently we're also optimists...lol...

Diane, I love the plastic clock! I think the fact that so many pretty kitschy stuff was made from plastic still makes me wonder. Somewhere around here I have a Burwood Pros. plastic wine and cheese clock. I've always wondered how seriously the makers took something like that. Did they mean for it to be kitsch? But at least yours is actually pretty! And the torquoise radio rocks!

I want to be a member of this group because over the years I have collected a few items that are featured in this group and I want to learn more about the people who enjoy this type of collection. What make these items exciting, What to look for in items like these.

And here we have the Mixers-3, I call them. My Sunbeam Mixmasters - all dressed up and ready to work. First from the left is the Sunbeam Model 9 from 1949, the second is the Model 12C (chrome). This was produced from the late 1950's until 1967. Mine is one of the later models. And next we have a late 1970's Vista Mixmaster - never as pretty as her predecessors, but you gotta love that Harvest Gold!

Here's a small part of my old clock and clock radio collection.
The wall clock is a "Wafer" designed by Henry Dreyfuss around 1940 for E. Ingraham Company. This is 7" across, runs perfectly and it's gorgeous!

The two clock radios were both manufactured by General Electric. The green radio is a Superheterodyne model, but it has a snooze lever so we can guess it's one of the last models using that name and is probably from the late 1960's to very early 1970's. I've never been able to find out anything about it. The red and cream radio is from the mid 1950's and is called a "Convertible" because the two sections come apart. You can then take the radio with you - but I'll tell you it isn't light. It might be portable, but just barely! It comes with a convenient pop-up handle.

And of course rounding out the group are the two vintage Bens - Big and Baby. Still to this day a very popular wind-up clock.

Hi All! This is a new group with a spot to show off and discuss all your vintage electricals. Anything that's ever been plugged into a wall socket (or maybe one of those big old batteries) we're going to cover it. The group isn't limited to just kitchen appliances. We want to see your lamps, radios, flashlights and clocks. Please post any photos you may have of these dearly loved old workhorses - many of the old gadgets were as strange as they were handy. Let us see what you've got tucked away. And if it's not working but it should, maybe the group can help. But if you blow up the house or short circuit the street, we never heard of ya!
