Evansville, Indiana. Servel. 1951.
Brochure, 9 x 4 inches, unfolding to poster-size sheet 18 x 16 inches, depicting 8 models of Servel gas-powered refrigerators. Catalog boasts "Years Ahead In Convenience and Beauty" and touts "Long Life Styling" by the American Industrial Designer Walter Dorwin Teague. Very good clean condition. In 1998 the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission released a report stating "Government safety experts continue to warn consumers to stop using Servel gas refrigerators manufactured between 1933 and 1957 due to the risk of carbon monoxide leakage in deadly quantities." A sobering thought at odds with "Long Life Styling." Item #53861
