$750

About the Item

This fabulous Japanese export Mid-Century Modern chrome and black enamel banjo figural decanter plays a heart warming version of the tune "How Dry I Am" when it is lifted off the surface to pour a drink. The condition is excellent and one can just imagine the sensation that this caused back in the 50's.
