I feel pretty safe in saying you probably don’t need a special device for testing light bulbs these days, especially one that was built back in the early 1900’s, but the 1920’s German Light Bulb Voltage Tester Bar takes something old and gives it a brand-new job.
Every self-respecting party animal has a bar in their home so friends and family can get to the serious drinking without actually having to go somewhere else and pay someone to prepare their watered-down booze but it’s a sign of refinement and style to have a bar that’s more than a bar.
Based on the original design of a 1920’s German Light Bulb Voltage Tester that was salvaged from a factory in Germany, this vintage-style bar is a hinged, iron sphere that opens to a hollow interior that holds bottles and barware, with a smaller built-in hatch that allows access without having to open the whole thing… but why would you want to conceal this awesomeness? Crack that puppy open so everyone can be impressed.
