The firm of J.A Henckels were well known for their innovative and ingenious pieces designed with the long-distance traveller in mind. From the 19th century onward, they were responsible for many different types of travelling drink and picnic sets, intended for use in circumstances where the availability of refreshment was uncertain. They are particularly well known for their 'Zeppelin' and 'Zeppelin Airplane' design of travelling cocktail sets.
