Design that Shines, The End

Mirror-polished chrome fronts this 1954 appliance, in a display that no doubt greatly gladdened the manufacturer of Bon Ami. And automakers who at the time dabbled in two-tone vehicles—Chevy, I'm thinking of you, particularly—might also be pleased by the color palette offered by Magic Chef. Even though this range only came in two options [porcelain enamel in Coral Rouge and Willow Green], it made a shining design statement. Truth be told, I prefer a solid oven door over one with a discoloration-prone window.
