At an excellent starting price too! As for the appearance, beautiful is an understatement! They don't appear to have a single scratch on them! And their story is even more interesting; they had hardly any use whatsoever!

Someone please bid on this great set!

Wow Austin, good catch, thanks for letting us know. Wasn't there another auction from Franklin Ohio recently??? I don't think it was the Philco set, but that town name seems familiar.

This is the same seller who was auctioning off the Speed Queen soild tub washer and KitchenAid dishwasher/sink set. Check is listings, the KitchenAid dishwasher/sink combination is still up for sale.

Don't know where this seller get's his stock, but would love to be one of his

As Fall is coming soon, we seem to be "falling" into some good opportunities. C'mon guys (Jimmy or others in the relative area), save these and let others have a crack at them in the club. Awesome shap. Hmm, another one of those strange instances where by original buyer didn't see the importance of a matched set--the lower model dryer vs. the washer. Truely based on functionality, but go figure.

Hmmm...I didn't notice that the dryer wasn't a Custom Imperial like the washer. Hey, at least the colors still match unlike some mismatched sets I've seen in the past!

Speed Queen on EBAY

Yes, I bid on that Speed Queen that was on Ebay, but since the seller never responded to my email, I refused to bid very high.

MRB,

While it can be fustrating if seller's don't answer emails I usually have to weigh that against how much I really "want" an item.

Many sellers are off doing other things, and or don't respond because they get lots of "crank" emails, but agree they should at least make an effort to sort out the good from bad.

There is also a chance eBay's mail system didn't forward the message, so I'll usually send a second after a few days of no response.

I also sent an email and asked a few questions of the seller. No reply at all.

Contacting Seller - Urgent Message

URGENT MESSAGE!

Regarding seller not responding; go to the above link and click onto seller's other items, then click on the 1920's wringer washer. There is a message there from the seller in the item description basically stating it has been brought to his attention eBay emails are not being received by him and gives an alternate email addy.

Oh skip it, follow the link below.

Hmmm, did cha ever get the feeling you was being watched?

Just noticed, the seller has also included the same message on all his live auctions. Could this be why bidding has started to heat up? *LOL* Have to love you last minuters.

Supply and demand. That is the joy of finding things on eBay. You need really deep pockets, or hope and pray that no one else sees/wants it. I've paid over $1K three times for three of my machines.

Not a bad price for an Imperial washer and dryer in pretty good conditon with little use. FWIU the repair required of the washer is a small routine matter so for someone in the know it would have have been a deal breaker. As more and more older homes are sold and their appliances ripped out/sold it is going get harder and harder to find units like this in near mint or even in very good condition.

Actually expected the set to go for much more, and heavy sniper action, but seems only the two bidders were interested.

Remember also that it is VERY expensive to ship appliances, especially vintage appliances which tend to be heavier than many many of today's versions. So bidding is sometimes restricted to collectors or someone that just

Going through my back room Sunday,I came across a timer and dial for a similar dryer. Wonder if it's worth EBay'ing....
