From New York, the Wolff Visible ToasterMade in Long Island City, New York, the Wolff Visible Toaster is an ordinary design and the same style of toaster is still made today as a camping toaster.
But, the graphics on the carton make it interesting with suggestions for use; note the Good Housekeeping seal of approval. The carton top flap is missing but the sides proclaim the contents.
The toaster folds flat and shows age and wear.
The company began in the late 1890s and was incorporated in 1931 and was dissolved in 1984. The toaster was patented in 1921.

The Krispy ToasterMade by the great American housewares company Androck, this is a generously sized toaster about ten inches across. It has a retractable handle that pulls out from under the toaster. It is nicely signed with the Krispy name under the cross wires. The handle can be pushed back under the toaster for easy storage. This one shows use and age, but still perfectly good for toasting. It's the American version of the Italian brustolina.

The Jewel Toaster with Swinging DoorsThis non-electric toaster is a fairly scarce oldie made of stamped metal so it has the usual light right. It has an open bottom so the heat travels up and then vented through the sides.
Each door has a knob on top to turn the slice to the opposite side.
It has a nice signature on top of the toaster. Manipulating the knobs is enough to keep the kiddies busy if they are old enough to understand hot.
