Can you guess what this is?

I was perusing KSL this morning and stumbled upon this rare find!

Can you guess what it is?


Any thoughts or ideas?


I'll give you a hint...


the picture for the original 1950s advertisement is below...

Yep, that's a Vintage Wall-Mount Refrigerator by GE!

Neat little innovation isn't it?

Too bad it didn't catch on too well.

Here's a picture of one still in working order from a lady who lives in Virginia, I believe. She's painted it white, which I like. Although, the original teal is not bad either.

I think this would be so much fun for a small kitchen where you don't have room for a huge upright refrigerator.

But probably difficult for those of us who struggle reaching upper shelves as it is. ;)

  1. I LOVE it! I don't know if I ever even knew these existed. I'm sure they were all the rage at the time and probably touted as the "future" of kitchens! I've started watching a lot of HGTV lately, and there was an LDS couple from SLC relocating to England. It was really interesting to see their kitchens there.
