Split Decision

I am open to suggestions on how to describe the most unusual configuration of this 1965 refrigerator. A built-in countertop ['illuminated', no less] cuts right through the midsection of the appliance, separating the two-door cooling compartment from the drawer-style freezer. It's a design that GE seemed certain would appeal to those of a well-heeled lifestyle. Evening gown, long-stemmed roses, golf games—all hallmarks of a leisure class. It's odd: I'd think they would be dining out, not lounging around the fridge.
