There's new stuff in the kitchen compared to 50 years ago, right? People didn't have microwaves, espresso machines, milk froathers. In search of room, they decided the breadbox wasn't really worth it when you could use that counter space for something else (even a cleaner look) while either leaving the sealed bread on the counter or putting it in the fridge. Yes, there might be some kind of advantage but it's not that big a deal not to have it given the alternatives and it frees up space. It's quaint and all but that will only take you so far. I'm sure you could find other types of furniture or appliance that used to be common but no longer are like chandeliers or grandfather clocks.
