This old toaster, which had an electric plus at one time,  looked ornate and interesting  ( Mississippi Antiques at  LeClaire Iowa) I brought it home and added a candle lamp to the inside..It serves as a night lamp on my kitchen counter. I love how it turned out and it always is on. The front panel opens easily to change the flicker bulb inside.
