Napkin dispenser with black metal sides and chrome openings on the front and back. It is rectangular in shape but is rounded at the top. The dispenser is hollow in the middle with black, spring devices on either side. These black, springed panels have two circular holes toward the tops and bottoms. There is silver-colored chrome trimming, which is only slightly scratched from use. There are screws toward the tops and bottoms of these trimmings on either side of the dispenser. These screws are slightly green. The main body of the dispenser is black. There is a thick band that vertically wraps the center. There is a rust-orange looking scratch on one of the sides. On the bottom there is a hinge and four small pegs on each corner. There also is an inscription that states "PROPERTY OF MENASHA PRODUCTS / MENASHA, WI / U.S PATENTS / 728694-2027670 / OTHERS PENDING".
