    For my birthday I received this beautifully designed Hotpoint toaster made by General Electric from the late 1910s-early 1930s. The original cloth cord and plug are still intact. This particular model (model #156T25) is nickel-plated with geometric weave cutouts and flips the toast, hence the name "Flopper" toaster.

      Made from the late 1910's-1920's. It is called a Flip-Flop" type because of the way the toast can be flipped, as opposed to the "Pop-Up" type. The body is pierced nickel.

      I was just adding to what you said for the benefit of those that may not be familiar with these items. As for the date, it came from book I have about these. No offense meant, just trying to be helpful.

      Hi, packrat-place,

      No offense taken! I'm sorry if my reply sounded curt. That's the problem with typed messages sometimes... Regarding the date, I shall alter my description so that it includes the years listed in your book. And thank you, I had a very nice birthday!
