This vintage 1960’s battery operated Bartender by T-N (Nomura) of Japan is a multi-action bar toy in very good working order. He shakes the cocktail mixer (there are little blue beads inside), pours himself a drink, takes a sip, his face lights up red, he starts shaking, and smoke comes out of his ears. He is 11-1/2 inches high. Base measures 5-1/8 inches square. He takes 2 D batteries (not included). The battery compartment is very clean. His pant legs are badly torn (probably from getting caught on the tops of his metal boots during action); his white lapels are fraying at edges; old glue at edges of 2 cloth buttons and edges of hair have turned brown with age; and the martini glass appears to have an old repair (some glue where cup joins stem). He still has his bow tie and golden cufflinks. The plastic parts and lithographed tin are in very good condition with colors still bright and beautiful. This is a neat old sixties toy in very good working condition.
