Maybe you’re bored with your Crate & Barrel barware set you received as a wedding gift. It might just be time to upgrade to something with more character and way more history. Sotheby’s is auctioning off truly rare barware curated by Alan Bedwell, the founder of vintage accessories gallery Foundwell, as part of their Prohibition in America | 100 Years celebration. Some of the vintage pieces blatantly thumb their noses at the law, while others keep booze locked up or were designed to hide their true contents (flask binoculars with drinking cup eye lenses, for example). The auction items should appeal to fans of history, lovers of collectible barware, or to those who are just looking for unique ways to enjoy their stash.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
