This Asian-inspired, high-gloss, black lacquer bar ware set -- with its minimalist touches of bright gold -- is a really stunning conversation piece. It certainly isn't a run-of-the-mill bar set; this one is guaranteed to elicit a few oohs and aahs. It includes:

-- VINTAGE BLACK-METALLIC "DISCO BALL"-EFFECT ICE BUCKET W/ BRIGHT GOLD ACCENTS -- This old-school ice bucket packs extra punch with its black-metallic "disco ball"-like exterior (see photo). It features slim, bright-gold plastic bands around the top and bottom, as well as a bright-gold handle and knob.

Inside, the condition of the white, molded-plastic interior is pristine; I suspect this ice bucket saw little, if any, use. The only minor imperfection to report is a very slight buckling of one of the (several hundred) black-metallic "panels" running vertically around the perimeter of this ice bucket. The lid appears to be made of black Plexi-Glass and is scratch- and chip-free.

Although the manufacturer is unknown, the base bears the residue of a manufacturer's sticker that's identical in size and shape to that of the Kraftware ice buckets made in the 1960s. (I haven't been able to find an identical one in my research.) The base is stamped "Taiwan/Patent Pending." This piece measures 9" high x 8" in diameter.

NOTE: The vintage gold-plated "claw" ice tongs shown in the photos are also included.

-- 6 VINTAGE, HANDCRAFTED OTAGIRI (JAPAN) "APPLE" COASTERS W/ ORIGINAL ROUND CASE -- The hand-painted lacquer ware housewares produced by Otagiri Japan in the 1960s were very popular, for their simplistic beauty and lightweight, yet durable, styling.

Each of this arrangement's six coasters bears an identical, really striking red/orange enameled "apple" design with raised gold-paint detailing. They do appear to have seen some use, as the raised gold paint is missing in small areas on some of them (see photo).

The original case -- which features the same hand-painted apple design -- is also included. Its base bears a gold foil "Hand Crafted / Otagiri Original / Japan" sticker. Each coaster measures 4 1/8" in diameter.

-- 6 FUNNEL-SHAPED COCKTAIL GLASSES --These funnel-shaped clear cocktail glasses are a bit of a mystery. Although I found them at an estate sale among lots of vintage glassware, I haven't been able to track down any information on them since.

While they may or may not be vintage, I think the shape of them is perfect for this unique arrangement. Each measures 3 3/8" high x 1 1/2" in diameter at the base and 4 3/8" in diameter at the rim.

-- LARGE BLACK-LACQUER SERVING TRAY WITH PAINTED-GOLD RIM DETAIL -- This large, lightweight rectangular serving tray is made of high-gloss black lacquer ware. There's only minor surface scratching to report, and it's visible only when held up to direct sunlight. Its rim is painted gold, which is in good shape. It measures 21" long x 13 3/8" wide. Maker unknown.
