ITEM: ITEM: You are offerding on an very stylish and awesome in design mechanical poker chip caddy set. This was manufactured in 1952 and was titled the Turn-It Chip Poker Caddy. Turn the center knob and the circular sides flip out to reveal 12 neat and tidy circular canisters that each hold about 25 - 30, 2" standard size poker chips. This is from the late art deco machine age era of Modernism. Top has two gold handles that reveal slots for playing cards underneath their resting place. I have seen a few on the internet that have sold claiming the case to be bakelite, which I do not believe to be true as this feels slightly lighter in weight. I think this is early plastic as the label on the green felt bottom likely confirms. Really a stylish Mid-Century Modern configuration - We love the design element on this is looks like it is speeding down the freeway at 100MPH just sitting still !! Everything we love about modernism and the art deco design aesthetic. --
Measures about 5 1/4" tall by 10" across when the sides are closed they open to about a diameter of 13 3/4"
CONDITION: Very fine condition no damage or issues - needs chips and playing cards and let's get the party strarted...
