      Don't know much other than this looks like one we used in our office break room in the 1960's.

      Wow! This is a cool piece. For use with instant coffee. Looks like it's missing some bin containers that would fit on top of the augers holding the individual ingredients. Turn the knobs selections cream, sugar and coffee (instant coffee) then drop the ingredients into a cup and just add water.

      The coffee break was created in the 50's when they it was noticed employees were more productive while consuming coffee on their breaks. Anything to sell more coffee, right? And a more productive employee, right? Well, it's true! Employees are more productive if allowed to consume coffee on the job employer paid or not. SO you can see why an employer would pay for office coffee service. Any whooo this looks like a marketing gimick created by ingenious coffee promoters to sell more coffee in an office enviornment and instant coffee at that . . . Just add water! How we have evolved.
