Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Sorry for the delay in replying, I only just came online and saw your question. Are you still looking for help with this?

If you are, can you tell me are there any other details on the data plate please?

The plate reads as follows.

General Electric


Cat. No. AR-18

Serial #(###) ###-####/p>

1575 WATTS 115 vOLTS 50/60 CYCLES- It is now obvious it is a 1941. I am curios as to what it's retail was in 1941 & what it's possible value is now?

Hi John

The date for this would seem correct and it was the 94th made that year.
Alas, I have drawn a blank with any other information, it certainly seems like a rare appliance.
The only thing I can think of would be to call GE and see if someone there has an interest in these old models and has some information.
