This is one of a series of dozens of Kentucky Tavern ads from the late 1940s and early 1950s with "themed" accouter- ments, some of which were advertised as actually being for sale in the better department stores of the day. The tiny cement mixer, though, probably existed only in an art director's imagination. (How did they fit the ice through that little hole? Maybe the whole thing unscrews.) The artist here might have been named Biondi. The Research Department is working on it.
