According to Kovel’s reference antique guide, in 1877 Joshua Hall, an icebox maker from New England, and his three sons moved to Belding, Michigan, and started the Belding-Hall Company. They moved to Belding because of the supply of hardwood for their cabinets. Danish craftsmen with cabinet-making skills had settled there. By the early 1920s Belding-Hall had one of the largest refrigerator factories in the U. S. In the early 1930s, the Depression, it was taken over by the Gibson Refrigerator Co., which is now a brand of Electrolux, part of the Frigidaire Company.
Measures 30″ Wide, 19″ depth and 56 1/2″ Height. This icebox was probably made between 1885-1888. This is one of John’s favorites.
