Decorating Genius – Clue #5

Today’s clue about the genius decor item concerns the age: it’s from the 50s. Things of this type started appearing in the 40s but I know from the reported history by the eBay seller that this specific one was acquired new in the 50s. I’d be surprised if there were still news ones coming into the market – I can’t really imagine that there are because it’s a passé kind of thing but I don’t really frequent the types of places where a person could find out.

The big reveal happens at 11pm ET tonight so make your last guesses now.
