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.
