Let’s go back in time…to the 1950’s. We’re going to a cocktail party. Frank Sinatra music is playing in the background…elegantly dressed women and men are talking. You hear the murmur of conversation, clinking of glasses, and see a wisp of smoke from a cigarette. These Swirl Sippers might have been used at one of these cocktail parties. For sale is a complete set of eight “Swirl Sippers” still inside their box. There are 8 Swirl Sipper sticks approximately 7-1/2” long in a rainbow of colors: clear, light yellow, hot pink, hot orange, blue green, fuchsia and purple. Each sipper is made of a hard plastic end with four fins inside a straw. Also included in the box are the instructions on how to use them and plus two clear glass (not included with original set) 5-3/4” stir sticks. The set comes in its original box which is not perfect. The box has several rough spots where tape was pulled off, has yellowed with age, and has general wear and watermarks. But the box is solid; corners are strong and intact on top and bottom. On the outside box lid is the Pat. No. 2613107 granted to John E. Jones Co. in Leominster, MA on Oct 7, 1952. There is a stamp at the bottom which has “Royal Imprints” Lewistown, Pennsylvania. It doesn’t appear that they were used except for the green sipper which has marks on the same spot on all fins. The rest of the sippers are in good shape. The sippers straws are all clean and straight with no damage; the swirl ends are all tight. This set would make a nice addition to someone who collects vintage barware, or can be used at your next cocktail party. Price: $20.
