12-piece white bands bar set

This elegant bar set is composed of six gold-rimmed cocktail glasses and a large cocktail shaker with a brass lid featuring a pour spout with removable cap and an attached ring holding a long brass stirrer spoon, all in a brass carrier with wooden handle. Design features horizontal white bands and numerous gold and/or gold and white leaves. Matching smaller carrier holds two gold-rimmed ashtrays with a single horizontal white band and numerous smaller gold and/or gold and white leaves. Heavy glass shaker stands 8" tall, rising to 9-1/2" tall at the lid spout, with diameters of 3-3/4" at the rim and 2-7/8" at the thick weighted base. Pear-shaped brass stirrer spoon is 2" long x 1-1/4" across at its widest point and its handle is 7-3/4" long. Cocktail glasses stand 2-5/8" tall with diameters of 2-3/4" at their gold rims and 1-3/8" at their thick glass bases with concave bottoms. Large carrier stands a shade over 13" tall and measures 11-3/4" across at the outermost holder rings. Ashtray carrier stands 7-1/2" tall x 4" across at its widest point and holds two 3-1/2" diameter gold-rimmed ashtrays, the bottom one of which has lost a good portion of its rim gilding. My assumption is that the set originally came with six ashtrays. Other than the one ashtray’s gilding loss, this set is in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or gold loss. Brass shaker lid and stirrer spoon are still bright and shiny and the set appears never to have been used. The brass on the large carrier is likewise still bright and shiny, whereas the smaller carrier’s brass has developed a lovely patina. One might guess that this set’s original owner was a smoker but not a drinker! This outstanding bar set is one of the loveliest we’ve ever seen and we know it will make a prized addition to your bar.

Unique 7-piece cordial set

This is a stunning old cordial set consisting of decanter and six cordials. The beautiful decanter has an 8-sided brass body, copper neck and base, and pewter stopper and handle. The brass portion has developed a lovely patina. As you can see from the pictures, the ornate handle was originally soldered on, but has become detached and needs to be resoldered. (Probably a couple drops of super glue would accomplish the same thing.) The decanter stands 12-1/2" tall with stopper, and is 3-1/4" in diameter at the base. The bottom is stamped “Sheffield”. The six stemmed brass cordials stand 3-1/2" high with 1-1/2" diameter octagonal rims and 1-1/2" diameter round bases. All pieces are in very good condition, with no dents or dings. A truly gorgeous set! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Knight’s helmet bar set

Wow! How cool is this?? Here’s a highly detailed mediaeval knight’s helmet whose top flips up to reveal a red enamel interior and a fully outfitted bar consisting of a decanter and four shot glasses! The metal helmet features an elaborately textured face piece lined in metal mesh, plus an equally elaborate “carved” plume flanked by two “carved” feathers. Outstanding workmanship! The helmet stands 10-1/4" tall x 7-1/2" in diameter, with a 6-1/4" diameter base . The 5-3/4" tall decanter is a ribbed swirl glass pattern featuring lots of spidery gold gilding on its shoulder and a bronze colored metal collar around its neck, and a cork stopper that’s a pour spout topped with a bronze colored lid. Decanter is 3-3/4" in diameter at its widest point with a 2-3/4" diameter concave base. The four shot glasses are 2-3/8" tall with diameters of 1-1/4" at their tops and 1" at their thick glass bottoms.

The son of a retired Sears and Roebuck executive recently sold one of these bar sets on eBay. The provenance he provided explained that his father hosted the Sears exhibit at the 1964 Furniture Market Show in High Point, NC. The exhibit featured one of these bar sets displayed as an accent piece with the line of “Country Four” furniture sold exclusively by Sears. These bar sets were also listed as accent pieces in the furniture section of the 1964 or 1965 Sears catalogs. By the way, his knight’s helmet bar set generated 17 bids and ultimately sold for over $235!

This decanter and all four glasses are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. The metal helmet has developed a lovely patina over the decades and its exterior shows some minor scratching that adds additional character to this beautiful bar set that is fully functional and makes a wonderful display piece.

Unique apple liqueur set

This unique vintage liqueur set looks like a big silvery apple that opens to reveal six shiny liqueur glasses inside. The apple stands 4-1/2" tall from the top of its stem to its 2-1/2" diameter base and measures 4" across at its widest point. The top half lifts off to expose six slender liqueur glasses resting in the six holes of a stationary crosspiece. Glasses are 2-1/8" tall with diameters of just over 1" at their rims and 3/4" at their bases. They have a definite Art Deco look about them, with three incised bands encircling their midsections. Apple bottom is marked “Charles Towne Pewter,” but the metal is aluminum, not pewter. There’s also a G/S hallmark that apparently stands for Carl Gould & Sons, Inc. I have been unable to discover any information about either Mr. Gould or Charles Towne Pewter, so if anyone has any information, please email me. I would judge that this set was probably made in the 1930's or 1940's and it is in excellent vintage condition. The glasses are pristine with no staining whatsoever, and I doubt they’ve ever been used. Apple exterior has a small dent on one side and the light surface scratching always associated with these vintage aluminum pieces. A beautiful and unique liqueur set that is as decorative as it is practical. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

American gas pump beverage dispenser

Return to those thrilling days of yesteryear with this way cool beverage dispenser that looks like a 1920's gas pump! Standing a whopping 20-1/4" tall on a 4-3/4" x 5-1/4" wooden base that retains its original gold foil sticker saying “American Gas Pump Circa 1920,” this beverage dispenser holds 1 pint, fillable by removing the top “bubble” piece that’s attached to a cork stopper and long aluminum tube that goes down into the liquid. The bubble’s sticker says “Bourbon,” but of course you can fill this dispenser with the liquid of your choice, which you then dispense via the realistic gas pump nozzle, handle mechanism, and long hose, just like you pump gasoline! The bright yellow metal body features five stickers, “Atlantic White Flash Plus Gasoline,” “Contains Lead (Tetraethylene),” “With Ethyl Brand of Anti Knock Compound (Ethyl Gasoline Corporation),” “Genuine Pennzoil Motor Oil,” and “Aviation.” Great vintage condition. No dings, dents, or paint loss to the metal body, no cracks or scratches to the plastic pieces, cork fits tightly and securely, and no cracks or damage to the hose. Some scratching on the cap piece and aluminum tube and a couple of slight scuffs to the wooden base. Comes in a colorful box that’s full of pictures and info. Can you say “nostalgic”?

Godinger gas pump beverage dispenser

This shiny metal gas pump beverage dispenser stands over 18-1/2" tall with a base diameter of 5-1/2". Body has an embossed front “label” that says “High Octane, Contains Alcohol.” Holds 1 quart (32 oz), fillable by removing the screw-on 4" diameter top piece that is embossed front and back with a drink glass, complete with ice cubes and stirrer, surrounding bubbles, and a “label” that says “Fill ’Er Up,” which you do by removing the gas pump handle and nozzle from their hook and squeezing the handle. Long black hose is encased and protected by a metal wire corkscrewing around its entire length. Undoubtedly intended to dispense alcoholic drinks at adult parties, but I keep thinking how tickled my son would have been as a kid to have one of these as the centerpiece for a car-themed birthday party. Talk about impressing your friends! Can’t you just picture a bunch of little boys pumping their glasses full of lemonade, fruit juice, or even soda pop? This gas pump beverage dispenser is in great condition with no dings or dents to the metal parts, no cracks or scratches to the plastic container, and no cracks or damage to the hose. Bottom is marked “Godinger.” (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Dispense beverage by removing the gas pump handle and nozzle from their hook and squeezing the handle. Long black hose is encased and protected by a metal wire corkscrewing around its entire length.

By the way, guys and gals, do you know how your favorite sport got started? Moonshiners! Back in the Prohibition era, runners – people who delivered moonshine, a home-brewed whiskey distilled from corn, potatoes, or anything that would ferment – souped up their cars so they could outrun the federal tax agents determined to bust them. These runners often held informal races to see whose car was the fastest, and by the end of the 1940s, the races became an organized sport, thanks to the most famous driver of the time, Big Bill France. Big Bill organized a meeting of drivers, car owners, and mechanics in Daytona Beach, FL, on December 14, 1947, to establish standard rules for racing, and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) was born. On February 15, 1948, the first official NASCAR race was held on the beach in Daytona, won by Red Byron in his Ford. A week later, NASCAR was incorporated and Big Bill was appointed as its fearless leader. And the rest, as we all know, is racing history!

Our NASCAR gas pump beverage dispenser looks like it’s never been used. Shiny new and with no damage anywhere. Comes in its original box that proclaims “Silver Finish - Tarnish Resistant” and “Officially licensed by NASCAR.” Sure to be the hit of your party, so ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!

Double horseshoe ice bucket

The front of this waaay cool – no pun intended – Louisville Stoneware ice bucket features a pair of entwined upturned horseshoes handpainted in shades of mottled gray. Top and base are rimmed in gray bands and strings of embossed beads. Standing an impressive 6-3/4" tall, its interior is 6" deep, its rim is slightly over 6-1/2" in diameter and its pedestal foot flares out to the 5-3/8" diameter base. Concave bottom carries the famous Louisville Stoneware artist palette logo and is dated 2006, making it one of the last pieces to sport this distinctive logo since both the company ownership and logo changed one year later. The bottom also says this piece is oven, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe, so the Louisville Stoneware folks evidently envisioned it as a multi-purpose serving piece. Actually, it would make an outstanding vase, too!  Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. Be sure to see our coordinating pair of Embossed Running Horse julep cups.

West Bend Penguin hot/cold server

This West Bend “Penguin” hot/cold server makes the perfect ice bucket, but could just as easily be used as a bun warmer or for any number of other purposes. It has a distinctly Art Deco look with its round shape, large brown bakelite lid knob, and curved brown bakelite handles. Made of chrome plated aluminum, the 5-1/2" tall bucket’s mirror finish exterior features a row of four raised penguins marching around each side, identifying it as one of West Bend’s Penguin line of products first introduced in 1941. Bucket is 4-1/2" deep with diameters of 7" at its mouth and 5" at its base that has three little knob feet. Interior is brushed aluminum. Bottom is marked with the West Bend Penguin logo and also shows the patent number. 2-piece unit measures 9-3/4" across from handle to handle and stands just shy of 9" tall when lidded. The West Bend Aluminum Co. was incorporated in 1911 by five West Bend, WI businessmen led by Bernhardt C. Ziegler and two skilled tool-and-die makers. Each of the 7 men put up $1,000 to start the company. Within weeks they had rented an old button factory on the banks of the Milwaukee River for $8.50 a month and had acquired a lathe, shaper, and drill press, quickly followed by a draw press able to turn out 15 kinds of utensils. After ordering 3,000 pounds of aluminum from Pennsylvania, they hired several employees and went into business, first exhibiting West Bend products at a 1913 hardware association meeting in Milwaukee. Their first big customer was Sears, Roebuck and Co. which purchased 40-50% of West Bend’s products up through 1919. A privately held company until 1968, West Bend is still in business today in West Bend, WI as a wholly owned subsidiary of Premark International, Inc. Our vintage Penguin server is in outstanding condition with no dings, dents, or interior discoloration, and looks virtually unused. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
