This handsome Executair 720C portable pub-and-coffee set does double duty! At night, enjoy the liquor you packed. In the morning, treat yourself to a little "healing" coffee. Or, you could always spike your morning java with some Bailey's or peppermint Schnaps...

Suffice it to say, the possibilities are *numerous.* :o)

The original owners of this clever set took very good care of it, even leaving the original tag -- with the key inside its sealed envelope! -- affixed to the left-hand side. The only clue that it ever saw real use is the hand-etched messages on the underside of two small tins: "tea inside" and "coffee." (I found this detail really charming, actually.)

The vertical insert in the right hand side of the case easily accommodates a large liquor or wine bottle, as shown. Or, it can also accommodate a thermos.

This kit includes:

-- 3 bright orange vintage plastic coffee cups; in like-new condition

-- 3 vintage stainless steel tea spoons with atomic-star detail on the handles; also in like-new condition

-- Vintage bottle opener with black Bakelite handle; fantastic condition

-- 2 small vintage aluminum tins with black plastic screw-on caps (2-3/4" in diameter x 3-1/2" high); clean inside; one tiny dent at the base of one, as seen in the second photo (see above)

-- Vintage Aluminum Empire Metal Ware Corp. 120-Volt Coffee Maker/Pitcher -- This great-looking -- yet functional -- aluminum portable coffee maker/pitcher retains all-original pieces, including the Leviton cord. It also features a black Bakelite handle and "feet." My favorite detail is the glass button/percolator on the lid.

I've tested this piece, and it definitely works; it gets hot fast, and stays hot. This piece measures 7" high x 4" in diameter (6" in diameter, with handle).

The brown hard case is in wonderful condition, with no dents and only the most minor scuffs. It features aluminum detailing, as well as the iconic Trojan's head, on the clasp and around the edges. The "Executair 720C" aluminum badge is still intact -- a very rare trait in itself.

Inside, this kit features genuine leather strapping and mother-of-pearl button accents. It's lined in black felt, which is very clean.

Open, this set measures 24" wide x 13" high x 14" deep (By design, it opens to a wide "V" shape.) Closed, it measures 11" wide x 6" deep.

NOTE: Liquor not included
