Available only as a General        Electric model    2H02 The New Hostess

New Hostess, originally the 2F02, was re-designated the 2H02 in 1948 when it started coming with a grey, plastic back. You can see the available colors above. Blue was added to the lineup in September of that year. Many of these had an ivory painted bezel but I think they initially came with NICRAL, polished aluminum or possibly just steel bezels.

Production of this model was suspended due to                    the War but resumed afterward.

The early 2F02 cases differed quite some from the end-of-the-line, styrene 2H02 cases.  As you can see, they used to be dirtier.
