I was expecting a lot more but ...this is it... (head bows). Dashing through the frost..never mind the 250 cost...anyways...wonder what was so special about Christmas 1940?

Someone's gonna need an awfully big bottle of Jubilee for that thing. I think you could find something in the scrap heap in better condition.

There is one in Dayton, OH with a better cabinet. Perhaps someone could piece the two together?

imagine - no shelving on the second unit and no idea what the rust-bucket might have telling what it has or doesn't have.

I don't know the significance of the Christmas 1940 edition other than an advertising gimmick GE came up with at the end of the year. It looks like the same fridge as a regular 1940/41 GE. I have an emblem I pulled off of one that was in a field on its back with a small tree growing up through it. Would be a neat fridge to find in good shape though. The emblem specifically dates it and they are pretty uncommon.

I've seen Frigidaire ads from the late Thirties encouraging people to buy a new fridge as a Christmas present and have a personalized engraving added to the badge. The suggested wording was something like "To Mother/ Christmas 1936." In other words, a sales gimmick they tried for several years.

It would have been a welcome present for someone still struggling with an icebox, for sure.
