Classic Modern specialise in selling genuine original pieces from the 50s, 60s and 70s, which frequently includes items that are hard to find elsewhere. Their current stock includes several Termotex Cocktail Snack Dispensers.
It probably won’t come as any surprise to learn that these date back to the 1970s, when the dinner party was at its most popular. They can be used to dispense straws, twiglets, breadsticks or mints.
Classic Modern has them in beige, brown or black, priced £12 each, as well as a number complete with their original packaging for £20. Their website also reproduces some of the packaging photographs of the dispensers in use back in Seventies, where are worth looking at for a reminder of what stylish affairs dinner parties were back then.
