Berkel slicer Indiana (Model B)


The name La Porte was given by the first French explorers around the mid 1600, and precisely in 1670. They so named this place because it was a “door” to vast territories and forests at the time unknown and unexplored.  

The name Indiana was chosen by the federal congress as to indicate a place where Indian populations lived. The state of Indiana was officially annexed to the United States in 1876.

The model "Indiana", or commonly referred to as "Indianina" was manufactured in the American plant of La Porte during the beginning of the last century around the 1920s.


The name, or rather the nickname given to this slicer was because it was manufactured in the state of Indiana 

Berkel story La Porte , even if originally this model was named Model B.

During the production of Model B small variations were applied from the original design, and it remained into production for a decade, from 1918 to 1928.


The particularity that makes this slicer unique and much appreciated by the antiques market, apart from being a rarity, is that it features smaller dimensions, making it easily adaptable anywhere. The smallest slicer produced by Berkel in the 1900.It is slim and well proportioned, fitted with a 263 mm blade.


The identification plates and decorations are in pure Art Nouveau style, making this splendid model history, not only among vintage slicers, but of the industrial and aesthetic revolution of the 1900.
