    The Art Deco styling drew me to this Juice-O-Mat made by Rival mfg. co. If I recall correctly they also made the can opener I recently posted.
    The patent dates on the underside date from 1937 and 1939. So that would place it in the 1940s. WWII put a damper on all things other than military collectibles so perhaps the later 1940s. Although I am sure they got a few out before the action started.
    This juicer is 8" tall when closed. Also a bit heavy. Heavy enough to use as a medieval weapon. Most maces probably weighed what this does.
    As soon as someone from down the hill gives me some backyard fruit I can give this thing a try.

      Thank you. One look and I tasted the Lemonade of childhood stands.

      Love the design. If Gort was going to juice oranges he would use this.

      Wow! Impressive!! And it looks like it would weigh a ton!! Very cool peek back in time. Had no idea they had something like this so early in the last century!

      LOL...took a peek again as it has been driving me crazy that something you said kept resounding in me...at first I almost said "Klingon"..but it's not...it's from "The Day The Earth Stood Still"! I can't believe it took me rethinking it. Growing up I loved to watch all the older black and white shows...especially sci-fi/scary movies.

      Ironically we were just discussing "The Day of the Triffids" the other day

      KarenLR71. elanski mentioned Gort and of course Klaatu Barada nikto is the command to get Gort to stand down.
