‘Slide Trombone’ cocktail shaker by Alfred Dunhill, 1925
Price Code: SOLD
Napier for Alfred Dunhill
A scarce and important, silver-plated cocktail shaker manufactured for Alfred Dunhill by Napier circa 1925, in the form of a stylized slide-trombone, the cylindrical body surmounted by a cover with fitted pump (in the form of the ‘mouthpiece’) and spout (in the form of the ‘slide’). The contents of the shaker are mixed by pumping the ‘mouthpiece’ and dispensed through the swiveling ‘slide’ by the same method. Ingenious!
Fully signed NAPIER and ALFRED DUNHILL to the base.
Height: 15 inches (38 cm)
