Today we are offering you a very special drink group suitable for schnapps or wine. What really makes it special is that it commemorates zeppelins. First is a small barrel or cask. It measures 7″ in length and 15″ in circumference. At its bottom it measures 4″ in diameter. The barrel has four metal bands/straps that stretch around it. On its top is a knob with a cork where the beverage is poured into the barrel. The barrel’s front sports a tap for dispensing the beverage. At this point, I have been unable to dislodge the tap to make it functional. Because I do not want to break something, I have not forced it. At this point I would have to describe the barrel as unusable for its original purpose.
A small metal zeppelin sits on top of the barrel near one end. It measures 3/4″ x 4 ½,” and makes the barrel all the more interesting. The barrel rests on a wooden cradle, flanked by six small wooden cups for the beverage of choice. The cups are shot glass-sized and hold between 1-2 ounces.
It is a most impressive set. It would add an interesting focal point to a zeppelin display. I have not seen anything like it, and have been eyeing it for inclusion with my personal items. I have just the place on a nearby office bookcase where it will look dandy until somebody claims it.
