Vintage 1950’s-1970s YAX Japan Automatic Bar Tongs For Ice Cherries and Olives.
No retro vintage or contemporary home bar is complete without its cool bar and kitchen gadgets, and nothing is cooler than an authentic vintage gadget!
This fantastic piece of mid-century gadgetry is an excellent find and a lovely piece of art in itself! These Japanese made, (YAX, I believe) Automatic Bar Tongs date from circa the 1950’s to the 1970’s and are in excellent, pretty much as new, condition! The actual tongs themselves appear to be unused and in excellent shiny condition. Even the wooden handle looks like new!
The original box with its lovely red velvety lining is also in very good to excellent condition but for a little wear to the lower outer edge underneath. The lid is in excellent condition with no tears for stains. Only a small patch where a price tag probably once was stuck.
These cool bar tongs measure approximately 18cm long and you can just imagine a summers day, propped up your retro home bar, watching those eyebrows raise as cleverly and suavely place your ice cubes, olives and cherries into your guests cocktails! Ahhhh!
A great vintage find that would make a great addition to any vintage bar and kitchenalia collection, or as a gift for that retro vintage fan!
