I picked up a GE Vortalex from an antique mall this week end. I have not seen this type before where the blades look like they angle backwards. Does anyone have any information about this one including what year it was made? Looks like WW II vintage.

I think that was made 1946-47.  The blades look normal to me.

Steve Rockwell can probably pin it down with images?  I "think" bronze/tan started in 47.  I know by 50 aqua blue was in.

Good thing is it is the little 9" model, those are a little more scarce & look really neat!
