That Was....

....A reefer intended for large households, as in mansions. It looks kind of plain to our eyes today, but at the time, kitchens were not focal points for entertainment - they were where the hired help did their work. A lady of the house didn't necessarily know what color the kitchen was painted, only that the food coming out of it was good, and served properly.

A household with this reefer might well have had a range like 58limited's Roper Town & Country.

Two things that concern... The custom paint job that almost looks like it was paint brush applied AND the lack of inside pictures which I would have liked to seen.

It's probably light as a feather compared to a three-door monitor top.

 

I like the way they say "If you're looking for a vintage refrigerator, this is perfect."

 

Yeah, if you own a forklift.

Evidently a post for each nostril... LOL!

You'll most likely need a kitchen with heavy floor joists. Hey John, how heavy were these for you to move when you were factory service on them?

Ducks and runs...

Never seen one of these, the price would have to come way down before I'd bite. I e-mailed them to see if they would provide interior pictures.

 

And damn, my shipper is actually in Maryland right now. No way for me to try and negotiate a deal before they leave.

I Know!

Money is an issue right now, BUT I did send a quote request to the shipper. If it is not too high, I might try to make an offer (much lower and based on additional photos).

 

My shipper just replied - $500.00 COD. That seems reasonable, but the fridge would have to drop in price, no way I can justify getting into it for $1500 before I can begin restoration.

As Doris Used to Sing:

Que sera, sera....

But I hope your inquiry makes good things happen! This fridge and your T & C represent a slice of uppah-crust life that has basically vanished. There are still mansions, and there are still rich people, but very few people today understand what being wealthy used to be like.

Milady used to get a visit from the butler each morning, who had the proposed menus for the day from Cook. Herself would review the menus, perhaps changing a sauce or ordering a different vegetable, then give them back to the butler for return to Cook.

At the appointed hour, the approved menu would appear on Milady's perfectly set table, with the proper wines on hand, sterling polished to a blinding shine, flowers arranged to Milady's liking, and plates heated just so. All the lady of the house had to do was to show up - preferably in a new Dior and the latest shade of Roux Fanci-Tone blonde - and sit down.

In the sort of house that had this kind of appliances, Madam didn't know or care what color the kitchen was painted, or what dramas occurred between her approval and the staff's execution. If she had a good butler and cook, she didn't even have to check anything, because she knew it was perfect.

A much better arrangement than today's, where rich people have to acquire culinary skills to prepare the meal themselves and bear up under the presence of half-snockered guests milling around in their kitchens in the name of "casual elegance."

The seller has not sent interior pics yet but did reply to say that this is a fridge only, no freezer.

Then you will need a chest freezer to go with it.

Muah-hah-hah-hah-hah!

Seriously, hope you can share the interior pics when you get them - this is an interesting box.
