Brand Name: Universal
Model Number: E9410

  
Details:
One of the most striking toasters ever made, this must have been known as something more elegant than the E9410. The best name we've heard anyone call this unit is the Sweetheart Toaster, so until some old advertising literature is found that tells us different, that's what we'll call it.

The Sweetheart Toaster operates by the two buttons on its base - one button for each side. Pressing one of the buttons swings the bread basket out perpendicular to the toaster allowing one to insert or remove bread. Release the button and the basket swings back against the toaster. Each subsequent pushing of a button makes the basket rotate in the opposite direction, so that both sides of the bread can be toasted.

This toaster was made and sold in the late 1920s - just before the Great Depression hit - and perhaps it is a good example of the opulence of the times.
