Vintage Wendell August #709 Wheat Toast Tray circa 1950

Infrequently seen Wendell August Forge hand hammered aluminum Style Number 709 Toast Tray with a Wheat repousse motif and notched edges. This circa 1950 piece measures about 5-1/8" by 9-7/8" and 2-1/4" high, and was designed to hold six slices of toast. Please use photos provided to judge condition.

I have several aluminum pieces from the same collector, with more to come, from an extensive collection that includes quality vintage work by Wendell August, Palmer-Smith, Town, James DePonceau, Arthur Armour, Laird, Cellini-Craft, Sheasley and many others. Most of these artisans were connected with Wendell August in some way. The majority all in fabulous condition. I invite you to sign up for my seller newsletter, through the button in this sale, to be kept informed.

History: Wendell August Forge is America’s oldest and largest forge, producing hand-wrought ornamental metalware and elegant giftware in aluminum and other metals since 1923. The company was founded in Brockway, Pennsylvania. In 1930, a commission to create decorative aluminum gates and elevator doors for the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) led to a focus in the production of hammered aluminum giftware. The historic facility was destroyed by fire in 2010 but the company is still “forging” on.

Interesting Tidbit: Wendell August Forge ashtrays were used on the Hindenburg.

Other Terms I will normally insure fragile items or items over $50 so on those items, insurance is included in the shipping cost.

Descriptions reflect an honest evaluation of the item’s condition and I try to provide several photos, so items are purchased AS IS and I do not, as a rule, accept returns or give refunds. On clothing, please read measurements, not just the tag size. If I have forgotten a measurement, please ask. I do not refund for item not fitting or changing your mind, only for any gross misrepresentation. Also no refunds if something is described as off-white and you consider it eggshell. NWT might mean a partial tag, content tag or button envelope but it means the item is unworn.

I leave my buyers response immediately upon payment, as you have thus fulfilled your side of the contract. Please let me know any concerns you may have before leaving me less than 5-star response.

International Buyers – Please note that your country may levy import or customs charges that are your responsibility – these are not additional shipping costs! I cannot mark items as gifts or below their value – the government frowns on this behavior. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying. If the sale tells you shipping cannot be calculated, then it is likely the box exceeds postal limits to your country.

See my other listings for more great items! Payment due within 7 days. There are many expenses involved in shipping your product safely including padded mailers, bubble wrap, peanuts, tape, FRAGILE stickers, and in most cases insurance. Understand that shipping costs may reflect a charge for these items. It is also sometimes difficult to estimate shipping costs before the item is actually packaged up. If you feel you have been overcharged, please contact me before leaving negative response. If there is a large discrepancy, I will make an adjustment, often before you ask!

Packages are now shipped by size, weight and ZONE, packages over 12” on any side may now be considered oversized by USPS and have a surcharge. I have no control over this. I try to keep the cost of shipping as low as possible. Please note that first class mail applies only to packages under 13 ounces.

On most items over $50, there will be a tracking number. Lastly, I always ship same or next day unless I tell you otherwise, so any delays in receiving your item are not mine... Add to Favorite Sellers Other Items response About Page store
