Art Deco cocktail set by Cartier, Paris
An extraordinarily rare and ingenious Art Deco Sterling silver travelling cocktail set by Cartier, comprising of two, 2-pint capacity spirit flasks, flanking a central covered container, which ‘assembles’ into a long-necked cocktail shaker, with dual integral strainer and juicer, and knurled screw-cap perfect for use as a spirit measure, and 4 silver shot cups for serving.
All component parts marked Cartier and STERLING, and bearing registration numbers. In a bespoke, fitted three door long-grain burgundy leather Cartier presentation case.
Height of set: 8½ inches (22 cm).
We know of only one other recorded set like this, which was exhibited in March 2015 at ‘Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century’, an exhibition held at the Denver Art Museum in the United States, and featured in the book accompanying the exhibition.
