Retro Italian Juicer

R370.00

I’ve never seen anything quite like this retro Italian citrus squeezer! It’s obviously modelled after the 1950s Juice King, but it’s a later model, and I have to say I really like this ’70s interpretation! I would have probably guessed that it was a late ’60s piece, but I know that it’s a 1970s model because inside the box was the original receipt dated August 1974 – mad! Even crazier that it cost R15, but given that my parents bought a house in Hillcrest for R30 000 in 1978, R15 was probably a fair whack for a juicer – talk about inflation! The family that I bought it from clearly didn’t use it very much given that it was still in its original box when I found it, but there are some signs of wear that aren’t visible in the photos – the plastic inner has yellowed in places from age, and there are one or two very minor scratches to the paintwork.

A great bit of retro kitchenalia in near perfect condition!
