This is one of the rarest Art Deco chrome and Red Catalin trim Toasters ever manufactured. Made in the 1930's by Superior Electric Product Corp. in St. Louis, MO.
This highly stylized Art Deco designed toaster floating on a tubular chrome frame is absolutely stunning. From its speed lines running down each side to its rounded & tapered edges and 4 bright red Bakelite stacked cylinder handles interspersed with chrome discs. The design is reminiscent of the Streamlined locomotives, ocean-liners and automobiles of the 30's. This was definitely a design made for the "kitchens of the future" during this era.
Toaster is stamped on the bottom "SUPERLECTRIC MF'D by Superior Elect Prod. Corp., St. Louis, MO. - No 66 Series 3.5 AMP = 110 120 VOLTS AC or DC".
This is the only one I have been able to own in 25 years of collecting Deco design.
