Truly impressive 1930s Kensington Ware cocktail shaker designed by Lurelle Guild. Featured on p. 201 of Visakay's book "Vintage Bar Ware".
Made of a sleek aluminum alloy, this skyscraper style shaker is topped with a gold tone finial.
All four pieces of the Cocktail Shaker are here: the Shaker body, a removable strainer, a cork stopper and the designer top with the brass finial. The strainer or the cork are many times missing.
Skyscraper measures 13 3/8" high & has a 44 oz. capacity. Outstanding condition - ready for display or use.
Perfect companions for the Cocktail Shaker are the 2 Kensington, 1930's matching aluminum ware side plates. These are called the Five O'Clock Cocktail and Canape and were part of Kensington''s barware collection. You will find many uses for these functional side dishes. Made of a heavier weight of aluminum.
