Stork Club Bakelite Dice Set (Original)$195.00
From the Thirties until it closed its doors in the Fifties, Sherman Billingsley's Stork Club was the place "to see and be seen." Started out as a speakeasy and evolved into one of the most famous restaurants in New York.
Never one miss a marketing trick, Billingsley was known for giving away hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts to his customers every year in high stakes prize draws; from cars to wrist watches, expensive jewelry and solid-gold cigarette lighters to pocket mirrors and dice. He gave dolls to the little girls at lunchtime and official major-league baseballs to the boys. He also dispensed free Stork Club perfume and a lipstick - whose three shades were named after his daughters - to every lady in the powder room, and everything carried the Stork Club logo and unique design scheme.
