Mid 20th Century Silver Plated Cocktail Shaker, Mappin & Webb, c.1950



A good quality silver plated cocktail shaker made for the British India Steam Navigation Company. Dating to the middle of the 20th century, this shaker would have been on board the steamer ship in the first class cabin bar. The thick gauge unlike any other cocktail shaker screams quality and it is no surprise to find out by looking at the underside that the marks read Mappin and Webb Ltd, a manufacturer synonymous with excellence in jewellery and silverware The Calcutta and Burmah Steam Navigation Company had been formed out of Mackinnon, Mackenzie & Co, a trading partnership of the Scots William Mackinnon and Robert Mackenzie, to carry mail between Calcutta and Rangoon. It became British India SN Co in 1862. Under the hand of Lord Inchcape, who had become chairman in 1913, the company became part of the P&O group of companies in 1914 through a complex amalgamation, but continued with its own identity and organisation for another nearly 60 years until 1972, when it was entirely absorbed into P&O.
