Well, I suppose (with some imagination) this could be decorated as a Christmas tree.

We bought at least one of these from your treasure trove that summer when John Lefever was making a trip up to your area, maybe for a Wash-In. I worked from your lists and John's selections from them to place and pay for orders of parts and whole machines brand new in cartons that John brought back to Beltsville in at least one trip, I think. The Petticoat covered most of the agitator fins to give gentle washing with a one speed machine in a different way than Norge did with the Ripplet.

Merry Christmas!

I do remember selling those 2 Blackstone dryers, new in box, one electric and one gas. Hated to see those go, but they went to good homes. That goes way back in time; at least 10 years. I could check my paperwork for the exact date.

I saved one Petticoat for myself. I always thought that it was unique item, and it was the only brightly-colored part of a 350.
