The Percolator of the 1950's

This percolator was a very important invention of the 1950's.  Made in the very popular chrome, this percolator made coffee automatically which had not been possible before.

As Kim Irving from the Glenbow Museum explained, "inventors were trying to make new things that would help to make life a little easier."
