This was produced by L.B. Sales Co. back in the 50's. Manually did the creaming, whipping or beating. In great shape!

    I think that is the old style for "and"...read Speed and Whipper
  2. kfranks kfranks, 4 years ago
    It does look like the old "and" sign. I have always heard of it being refered to as the speed e whipper.
  3. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 4 years ago
    and it may well have been. In "advertiser speak" Speed-E-Whipper" is much more catchy.
  4. kfranks kfranks, 4 years ago
    It is a bit catchier. Thanks for your input, I do appreciate it.

    Definitely an 'E', not an ampersand -- see this photo of the brochure which spelles it out -- http://ny-image3.etsy.com/il_430xN.118673483.jpg

    Made by the LB Sales Co -- I can't find anything on them. Maybe it was Leo Blackstone, but that's a dead end for me too -- http://books.google.com/books?id=AwRhAAAAIAAJ&pg=RA3-PA61&lpg=RA3-PA61&dq=%22L+B+Sales+Co%22+Los+Angeles&source=bl&ots=PTZ4hgpGIF&sig=pNGX3cMpx_r9h_QU2aEiQhFO_H0&hl=en&ei=l31LTIzyN4L58AaAtvkx&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5&ved=0CCMQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=%22L%20B%20Sales%20Co%22%20Los%20Angeles&f=false

    Here are some more ampersand fonts that look like E's --

    Thanks MsDow, I don't have the instructions on it but that clears it up nicely. I haven't heard much about LB Sales either. I have to do some more digging on that also. Everyone on this site is so nice and informative. I am really glad I joined.

    Forgot to throw in ebay for values - completed show them as having sold for $2.00 to $28.00 -- http://completed.shop.ebay.com/i.html?rt=nc&LH_Complete=1&_nkw=speed%20whipper&_dmpt=Small_Kitchen_Appliances_US&_fln=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m283&_rdc=1

    Yes, I look at eBay often for pricing. I do sell there but am dwindling my store down because of the crazy high cost to list, keep, etc.

    I purchased one of these at the local church run thrift store for 99 cents. I thought it would be a perfect milk frother for my stovetop espresso maker for cappuccinos. However, my 9 year old son is having alot of fun making hot chocolate in it in the morning...so easy to microwave the milk in glass part, add chocolate syrup, and then add the cover to pump away to a warm bubbly morning drink.

    OH cicababy I just saw your post. What a great way to use it and how fun it must be for him to make!
