How did it happen that in 1968, when a bright Pop-art palette was the rage in the worlds of fashion and art that the best the appliance industry could muster was that regrettable 'rainbow' of almond, avocado, and harvest gold? I do recall the earth-tones trend, but if memory serves, that sprouted up a little later, in the early 1970s. In that case, I apologize to Tappan and its design team, as they were actually ahead of the times, color-wise.
