Berkel Indiana 1918-1928 (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 stateof Indiana wasofficially annexed to the United States in 1876.


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

The name,or rather the nickname given to this slicer was because it was manufactured in the stateof Indiana , even iforiginally this model was named Model B.

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