This is a nice vintage toaster made by the American Electric Heater Co. Detroit USA. Cat No 5825. Toaster is in great condition, has the metal logo on the front too, in a triangle that says AMERICAN electric heat. Both sides open , top can be removed. I do not have a cord for this toaster. Three of the foot pads are on; the other needs to be tightened in with some pliers and is taped to the toaster. This dates from the 1920's.

This is a nice toaster for someone's collections or country kitchen!

Happy Bidding!

On the foot issue, the feet are small rubber like eraser looking items, but much smaller. They were attached somewhat like a diamond in a ring with small metal tabs. four tabs per foot. This little foot which is to the left as you see it from the front just needs a tab tightened. We will do that before it is sent. You can see the masking tape with the foot to the right front of toaster. Also toaster does work. I toasted two pieces of bread with it! I have googled my heart out and studied everything I can about this little toaster. It is older than 1920. T are more numbers on the bottom which are pat.pend numbers or pat numbers. I didn't give this cute little toaster much thought but I think it is very rare after reading much about George Schneider who invented a practical completly enclosed toaster, the wires are enclosed inside. The patent was assiged to AEHC Detroit in 1905-06. I do not know when the first one was manufactured, this could be the model. If anyone has any clues to its history could you email me? I'll post it.
