Antique Vintage Electric Toaster ca. 1922 Armstrong Table Stove NR

This light blue all-in-one appliance was the perfect thing for someone living in a one room apartment, boarding house, fraternity or college dorm room in the 1920s. We are selling it "as found" without the chord and no attempt to clean up.
This pieces served as a single burner hot plate; toaster; broiler & oven (not sure about that one).
It includes:
- deep tray (square pot)on the bottom - aluminum with wooden handle - presumably can be used on bottom to broil or on top to boil
- flat tray (square pan) - aluminum with wooden handle - presumably can be used on bottom to broil or on top to fry, saute', scramble etc ...
- one slice toaster tray
- iron grease pan
The label says:
" Armstrong Table Stove
The Armstrong Mfg. Co. Huntington, W.VA. USA
Patented Oct-9-17 Apr-23-18 Dec-12-22
No. 8-B
110 volts 600 watts"
It's possibly something t's a toaster collector who still doesn't have one, OR a prop purchaser for the movie industry would find quite useful in a 1920s set piece. I don't know why, but I can imagine something like this in an old movie with Jack Lemon or Tony Curtis.

A vintage ad I saw on ebay described it this way: "Do you enjoy your own entertaining? It's much more fun to bring your stove in w your guests are than to take them out to the kitchen - or leave them while you do the cooking! ... Many delicious things can be cooked right at the table without fuss or trouble - three things at once, and enough for four people! You can broil steaks or chops or bacon, make toast ... cream chicken or mushrooms fry eggs or sausages or potatoes. This thoroughly practical table stove boils, broils, fries, steams and toasts, making possible almost any dish for any meal."
