This listing is epic!! So rare to come across an original, vintage, working Sunbeam Mixmaster – – – in PINK!! Classic Mid Century Modern. The envy of every housewife of the 50’s. Here’s the history of the pink kitchen craze. Inspired by the favorite color of First Lady Mamie Eisenhower, pink was an exceptionally popular color for kitchens and bathrooms in the 1950s. Mamie loved the color so much, even her cotton balls were pink! Dubbed “Mamie pink, ” the color soon became a national symbol for the joy felt at the close of WWII and the remaking of the American household. Mamie, so refined in her lovely shades of pink, became the ideal model for an American housewife. Ike runs the country. I turn the pork chops, she once famously said. Mamie was ladylike and down-to-earth. She loved Lawrence Welk. She wore noisy charm bracelets. She played Scrabble and watched soap operas and served TV dinners! Because of her, pink was suddenly a symbol of class, refinery, and patriotism. Contrary to our modern perspective, pink was not seen as a “girly” or “feminine” color. Housewives dreamed of homes slathered in pink. It’s estimated that over five million households featured a pink kitchen or bathroom or both! It’s rumored that Mamie always carried around paint swatches of pink, green, and cream. Throughout all of her military moves, even into the White House, Mamie used these swatches to make her house a home. She got to painting and decorating right away. The presidential headquarters was so pink, the White House was actually dubbed the Pink Palace. So, if you’re like Mamie, or working to complete your Mid Century Modern kitchen, the crowning piece should be the famous pink Sunbeam Mixmaster! Comes as you see it, complete with 2 bowls and beaters. It is incredible pre-owned condition. Slight paint loss in a couple places, nothing horrible. The mixer comes off the stand if you need to hand hold it. It has variable speeds and was built to last many, many lifetimes. Unlike electric mixers of today! This one is a beauty! The item “RARE!
