ZULU-LULU : The Newest Swizzle Stick Sensation
|Availability:||Out of stock|
[Curio] - ZULU-LULU. The Newest Swizzle Stick Sensation - Made in Hong Kong - ca 1965 - 6 bakelite sticks on board - 27,5 x 22 cm.
Condition: Good - complete set. fragile material.
Each of the six "zwizzle sticks" represents a black Zulu woman of a certain age with corresponding breasts, from perky as a fifteen-year-old to straightforward "hanging tits" in her 40s. Apparently, the women over that age were no longer even suited to serve as stirrers.
¶ These stir sticks (height approx. 15 cm each) are not only jaw dropping racist, they are also extremely unfriendly to women. However, over half a century ago, this was just humor. The product "will make your guests" bust "out laughing!" the packaging states ("Made in Hong Kong"). Bizarre but museological curiosity.
