Sold As Is

Items on this page are no longer working properly and are sold as vintage kitchen props for film, theater, exhibit or other display and not for use.

A note to property masters

We work with property masters for just the right kitchen props, and given good direction, have provided props for glossy magazine shoots, film companies, major stores including the New York flagship store for Nike and windows at Bergdorf-Goodman on Fifth Avenue, HBO movies, Broadway shows, and theaters across the country. Latest is the movie of The Great Gatsby.

green toaster from Japan

Green Toaster

In the silly category, here's a toaster with a carry handle (Do they have a Take Your Toaster To Work Day in Japan?), top cover and in a particular shade of green. It still works, but not well enough for me to sell as such. This model may have been made for use in Japan given the label on the control knob.

This one is better as a prop on a theater stage or movie set.

The Rosebud Toaster

This toaster is called the Rosebud toaster. Calling Orson Wells, calling Mr. Wells.

The shape is most appealing, and the timing mechanism and internals make it not worth fooling with. It works, but erratically and most unsafely, so this is sold as a toaster for display only. I've left the cord on in case it is used as a stage prop, but for display, I'd just cut it off.

There is a compartment to hide your secret wishes.

Circle Toaster

The shape of the case is a circle intersected on the horizontal plane with the black base. The pushdown lever and release lever are located on the narrow side with only the Light/Dark adjusting wheel appearing on the face of the toaster. The wheel turns, but doesn't seem to do anything to the clock.

This is not a good choice for regular use; rather, a still functioning example of terrific design and function. This toaster has not been refurbished and is sold 'as is'. I've made toast in it.

The clock still ticks, and it still pops up automatically. The surprise is that the release lever will pop up the toast early, but leaves the heating elements on until the end of the clock cycle. The light/dark dial doesn't seem to do anything.

On the back side, there is a little crumb drawer that pulls out of the base..

Concentric circles deco theme

Waterfall base

Superlectric Toaster

This toaster incorporates two elements of modern design: concentric circles with staggered speed lines, and the waterfall handles and base. The rounded corners are central to streamlining and the notion of speed. The manufacturer used lightning bolts in the Superlectric logotype (image taken from a different toaster.)

As nifty as it looks, this is not a good choice for regular use. This toaster has not been refurbished and is sold 'as is'. I've made toast in it.

The clock still ticks, and it still pops up automatically. The surprise is that the release lever simply lifts the carriage to raise the toast, but leaves the heating elements on until the end of the clock cycle.
