Let’s Get Cooking episode in which we make popcorn with a vintage electric popper that has been in storage for 15 years. Does it still work after all this time? Electric sparks! Exploding kernels! It is better than microwave popcorn?

The Popper-PLUS: “a handsome appliance that does so many things well”
Made by Wyndale Mfg. Corp. of Indianapolis, Indiana

The “postal zone” address on the card dates this between 1943 and 1963 according to this Wikipedia page. The use of “Fire King” glass on the top would date it between 1942 and 1945 according to this FireKing faq. So this popper was made around 1944.
