1920s Lightbulb Voltage Tester Transforms into Personal Bar


Inspired by an early 20th century light bulb voltage tester that was discovered in a factory in Germany, this hinged metallic replica opens up to reveal an impressive bar. Equipped with three shelves, three stemware racks, and five slots for wine bottles, the 265-pound iron ball is fully capable of storing all the best liquor, spirits, and barware.

The unique design also exudes an overwhelming sense of masculinity. Its antiqued finish adds to the refined manliness of the design that makes it look like it belongs to a James Bond villain or perhaps to 007 himself. There's even an elusive hatch on the sphere, allowing for easy access to alcohol.

The bar is currently being sold through Restoration Hardware for $1,995.
