Magic Whirl Hot Cocoa Warmer

Here at we are surrounded by all things retro. Not only the things we sell but original items and collections that decorate our offices. We thought it might be interesting each week to bring you a photo and information of an interesting, and maybe unusual, retro item we have kicking around. Please note these items are not for sale.

This is a vintage hot chocolate warmer that was most likely used in a diner or restaurant in the 1950s or 1960s. It has a Dutch theme throughout. There’s a boy with wooden shoes circling the pot and a windmill on the rear display panel that was electrically powered to turn, advertising the hot cocoa. The blue-and-white Dutch theme is very much in keeping with traditional china patterns from Holland. This is a neat little piece of retro Americana that we thought you would enjoy.
