Wow, that is a beautiful fridge!  I would guess it's Seeger sourced.  Too bad they didn't provide shots of the freezer, which I presume isn't frost free.


They've come to their senses on the asking price.  Such a rare and full-featured fridge, complete and in proper working order, is worth $350 IMO.  $3,000 -- not a snowball's chance.

Ralph, if this is a 1957 model as claimed, it was made after the merger of Seeger and Whirlpool, which took place in 1955. The company was known as Whirlpool- Seeger Corp. until sometime in 1957, when the Seeger name was dropped.

Thanks Tom,


So was this fridge an original design from Whirlpool or is it a Seeger holdover?

Designed the compressor, it was so good Whirlpool used it until 1984, I believe Whirlpool bought seeger in 57, i got this from a article in Fortune magazine, I think they bought Servel in 55 but i might be wrong in any event, these are as good as any refrigerator ever made i think, quiet and well built.
