JR0958 F E Erickson “Swami” fortune teller napkin holder

1 Cent “Ask Swami” Countertop Fortune Teller Napkin Holder by F.E.

Would have been used in 1950’s diners. Remember the iconic Swami machine featured in the famous Twilight Zone episode starring William Shatner? Place a penny in the machine..ask a “yes” or “no” question and pull the lever. I asked if the machine would sell. My answer: “Present tendencies appear most favorable.” The machine works but not every time. The bars on the back are for holding a menu and  are  original, intact rubber feet for sitting on a countertop/table.Erickson Co. Inc.
