20th Century American Silver Plated "Milk Churn" Cocktail Shaker, circa 1940



A large “milk churn“ shaped cocktail shaker made in the USA, produced in the 1940s. Just as the prohibition era was lifted in 1933, it is easy to imagine the appeal behind these objects which would have made wonderful items to wow their guests. As relevant today as it was then, it makes a fantastic conversation piece and wonderful as part of a collection of barware in the modern home. Measures: Height 43cm Diameter 13cm.
