A magical mini bar/Bakelite picks set, circa 1930s. The "bar" is covered in red felt and the picks mimic real bottles (with miniature labels) and has a chrome upper and rail. Truly an incredible set. There was originally a mini cocktail booklet that hung from the rail but it likely got lost over the years. Truly is a rare and magical set.

Era: 1930s

Hallmarks: "Pat. No. 116459 Made In U.S.A." can be found on the back (left side)

Condition: Very good vintage condition with obvious signs of age and wear. We're pretty Type A about the exact condition of our vintage items, so here's a summary:

The bar is in good shape overall; there's some wear to the felt (purely due to age)
The chrome "rail" has quite a bit of tarnish and rust that will likely not polish away
The picks are in good condition overall (no broken tips) however the chrome stems have some tarnish and patina
Some of the chrome stems/picks are ever so slightly longer than the others (it doesn't affect their ability to "sit" in the felt bar
The picks are all straight and have their labels (there is some minimal wear on a few spots of some of the labels).

In short, this vintage set is in very, very good vintage condition with signs of age and wear and truly a magical one.

Measurements: The wood bar is approx 5" wide and about 4" tall (excluding the picks); the picks are approx 3 1/2" in length.
