Kut Hing, China.

A highly unusual, and monumentally large Chinese cocktail shaker, with 9 gilt-lined cups in silver-plated pewter, profusely adorned with scenes of dragons, made by the Kut Hing pewter factory of Swatow (now known as Shantou), a city on the east coast of Guangdong.

‘Swatow’ literally translates to ‘mountain head’ and the majority of the pewter products made in this region were famous for being heavily decorated, the most popular of all themes being dragons. Chinese, circa 1920s.

Height of shaker: 14 inches (36 cm).
