I bought a new fridge. It’s older than me.Posted: June 18, 2014 Filed under: Fun Finds, Vintage tablecloths, Vintage toys | Tags: Akro Agate, vintage kitchen toys, vintage toy dishes, Wolverine toy refrigerator 3 Comments
It’s also much smaller than me!
It’s a Wolverine, made in the USA in the ’50s.
Check out the sleek white enamel outside, with cute red door handles that really work.
One of our grandmothers had a Frigidaire that looked an awful lot like this! This toy Wolverine is not quite 14″ tall though.
Yes, there’s a little bit of surface rust, plus dings and dents. That’s what happens when you’re 65 years old.
Inside, it’s white and turquoise. I wish the fruit and veggie drawers really opened!
In the top freezer section there’s room for a butter drawer plus a slot for the ice-cube tray that I think this fridge originally had.
And the two doors originally had cardboard liners printed with all sorts of colorful jars and packages of food. The liners are long gone, too.
Still, it’s cute.
It’s going to the Vintage Bazaar next weekend!
So cute. I would have gone gaga over that as a kid. And well maybe now too 😉
Darling. Love the little ice cube slot.
So stinkin cute! And I want the tablecloth!!
