You are viewing a working 1930s Art Deco period Manning-Bowman Chrome Two-door 'Flopper' Toaster that includes the original black and white stripe cloth-covered detachable cord set. At the time, these toasters were a new appliance and all the rage in the 1930s. Back in those days when sliced bread began to hit the market, hosts and hostesses would typically bring this appliance to the table and toast bread right in front of their guests at the table.

The toaster is in great working order and in excellent overall condition. This unique vintage toaster has two doors with knobs on both side and the doors fold (or flop) down to place the bread for toasting. The interior contains the heating elements to toast the bread. The toaster's heating elements are in very good working order and heat up pretty quickly once it's plugged into an electric outlet. The all-chrome exterior is in fine condition with all of its chrome surface intact, and the doors still retain their black bakelite knobs. The toaster also retains its original four black bakelite feet on is chipped which keeps it from burning the surface on which it is placed.
The underside of the toaster reads: "Manning-Bowman & Co. in Meriden, Conn., U.S.A.
