Q. I have an apartment-size refrigerator that actually looks like an old safe with the scrolling design, old western scene, and a combination spin dial.  On the front, it says "Kenmore Lock and Safe Co."  When were these made, and how many were made?  And were they made to celebrate some event?

A. Because Sears did not list their catalog items based on model numbers we cannot locate your item. However, your additional description suggests that the “safe” refrigerator appeared on page 375 of the 1985 Sears Wish Book and is modeled after safes sold by Sears in 1910. The image on the refrigerator is of Richard W. Sears on the platform of the Redwood, Minn., railroad station in 1886. Redwood Station was the birthplace of Sears, and the 100th anniversary was celebrated in November 1986. During the mid-1980s, anniversary memorabilia, including hats, plaques and playing cards were printed with the same pictures you see on your refrigerator.
