Add a memory or information about this object
- My Grandfather had the Sky Queen because he moved to the Countryside (1954) and had no Electricity.
It was made 1953 to 1955.
The Sky King replaced the Sky Queen in 1956, so it's quite untrue to say one was for the Ladies and the other for the Men as they never were on sale together, except for some old stock. The Attaché case models (Vidor Lady Margaret or Ever Ready Sky Baby were aimed at Women. My mum had the Lady Margaret, bought 1955). My Grandfather's Sky Queen was still working in the 1960s when I stayed. The batteries were sold up to 1968 at least. Sky King is almost same insides and battery, a B136.
