20th Century American Silver Plated "Recipe" Cocktail Shaker, circa 1930



Antique 20th century American “dial-a-drink“ recipe cocktail shaker, produced in the 1930s. The mechanism works by rotating the shaker, each small adjustment reveals windows which describe how to make a different cocktail. Just as the prohibition era was lifted in the USA 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.
