Item/Description: Vintage ca 1950s Lake Tahoe, California souvenir black lacquered six (6) coasters cocktail/bar accessories set in their original decorative storage container. In addition to being quite decorative on their own, merits once stacked and tucked away inside their storage box, the storage box itself remains quite a decorative enhancement on its own.
***Both container and individual coasters display charming graphics relating to various geographical regions/sites of the Lake Tahoe tourist area.

*Lid to container depicts Emerald Bay
*Coaster #1 depicts Cave Rock

*Coaster #3 depicts Heavenly Valley
