"The Metropolitan Ballroom" was a great place to catch some jazz, dance to some swing, and if you slipped the waiter a little something, drink a little 'hair of the dog' disguised as "lemonade".
Use one as a catch-all tray, or get a set and use them as coasters. They make pretty swanky serving dishes as well. Own a piece of history!
The underside reads: "A 'Speakeasy', also called a 'Blind Tiger', was a saloon or social club that illegally sold alcohol during Prohibition (1920 to 1933). The owners of these saloons, and the gangsters that supplied them with their stock, like the notorious Al Capone and his Chicago 'Organization', were seen by the public as glamorous personalities. Speakeasies were also the first bars to encourage women to patronize them by offering music and entertainment as well as fancy cocktails. In honor of these long gone night spots, Trixie & Milo present our "Speakeasy" trays, each one decorated with a vintage cocktail napkin design from the 1920's & 30's."
6" x 6" heavy porcelain tray.
Food safe and dishwasher/microwave safe.
Vintage artwork fired into the ceramic (will never come off!).
It's the cat's pajamas!!
