The cocktail drinking public was captivated by the ingenuity of the inner gilded sleeve and the external rotating sleeve with its windows which displayed the ingredients for sixteen of the most popular cocktails of the day. A bar essential of the cocktail connoisseur!

(On right) Napier for Alfred Dunhill: ‘Trombone’ cocktail shaker, a rare and important, silver-plated cocktail shaker manufactured by Napier, USA to the Alfred Dunhill design, 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 swivelling ‘slide’ by the same method. Ingenious!
