Default Pre1910 Electric Kitchen Appliances

Pictured here is one of the earliest known examples of a a American Electric Tea Kettle by General Electric Company. There is but a handful of these in private collections. It is all solid brass with nickel plating over. GE made 5 pieces to this set in 1905 and this is one of the five . There was a Coffee Percolator, Coffee Pot, Tea Kettle, Frying Pan and a Suuce Pan. All 5 of these pieces are really really rare..

Default 1891 Carpenter Electric Company Kettle

You are looking at "THE VERY FIRST" American Electrical Kitchen Appliance by Carpenter Electric of Minnesota . Would love to find anything made by this company.

That's pretty cool! Are they 110V AC? I wonder what the 3 piece set cost in 1905?

Why are there two connection points on the kettle?

I imagine finding a cord is going to be tough.

I have an old appliance that has no cord either... The later ones became somewhat standardized and interchangeable...

In course of continued (continual/perpetual??) downsizing, found old coffee percolator with odd connection we picked up years ago (but never got around to looking for cord)...
Sez Russell Elec Co Chicago, 500W, 110V, but connection prongs (2) are horizontal instead of vertical or straight/round...
Were connections proprietary in the early years, lots of different types, or only a few??

In the earlier years most manufactures of early electrical appliances had their own unique type of connecting style of plug receptacles. There is a huge difference in scarcity of something 1910 and later compared to pre 1910. Why not post a picture of yours as it would be nice to see..

I have one of the cords on my other Coffee Maker and scarce as heck, however as rare as these pieces are, does not effect its value at all..Saying that, I would be willing to pay $500.00 for another one..

Reason for 2 different connections is one is for LOW and other is for HIGH. I also do have the original cord and plug receptacle now..
