Wow! This is a cool, cult-classic 1950 Turnit Manufacturing poker chip caddy in the hard-to-find black color. You simply turn the knob on the top and 12 cylinders full of poker chips swing outward for access. Turn the handle back and the chips swivel neatly back in for storage.
Made of durable, marbleized, hard black plastic, this awesome poker chip caddy will continue to provide years of enjoyment. The handles are heavy brass/gold colored metal. As shown, there are 2 slots to store 2 decks of cards. The poker chip cylinders are filled with poker chips. This one even comes with the original instructions.
For its age, very good.
Expected usage wear on the topside of the handles and top handle stops (the rivet-looking things).
Mechanism works flawlessly.
Comes with vintage chips as shown.
Bring your own cards.
Brink your own drink.
Comes with original instructions.
Someone couldn’t tell they were instructions, so they wrote “Instructions” on the instructions.

12″ diameter with the chip cylinders open
Wikipedia says, “The dead man’s hand is described as a two-pair poker hand consisting of the black aces and black eights. Along with an unknown ‘hole’ card, these were the cards reportedly held by Old West folk hero, lawman and gunfighter, Wild Bill Hickok when he was murdered.”
