Boston Lighthouse Cocktail Shaker, Circa 1927

Description

“This is a truly magnificent and extremely rare antique American, hallmarked silverplate, 14″ Boston lighthouse cocktail shaker, circa 1927 with exquisite decoration, and made by one of the very best, early American silversmiths, E G Webster/International Silverplate Co, that has absolutely stunning detailed workmanship. This is a great example of a very rare, original, 1927, E. G. Webster/International Silverplate, Boston lighthouse cocktail shaker, in lovely original condition with no dinks, dents, splits, repairs or damage. The plating is completely intact, which is nice, bright and shiny. Its top pour spout cap is all original and quite heavy. A decorative design, that differed from the normal classic cocktail shaker shape, and were fashionable during American prohibition of the 1920s, to conceal alcohol, and make them less easily recognisable by the police, during routine checks and raids, when Congress had voted the country ‘dry’.E. G. Webster and Son worked from premises in Brooklyn, New York. It traces it’s history from 1859 when Elizur G. Webster (1829-1900) started the company. The company was known as the Webster Manufacturing Company. It became E. G. Webster & Bro in 1873. When his brother retired in 1886 his son Fred took over. Fred Webster carried on the company until it was sold to the International Silver Company in 1928. The company was moved from Brooklyn NY to Meriden CT. Fred continued with the firm but retired sometime in the 1930’s and died in 1941. The firm was incorporated in 1898. Among the many independent companies which became part of The International Silver Company are Barbour Silver Co, Derby Silver Co, Meriden Britannia Co, Middletown Plate Co, W. Rogers Mfg Co Ltd, Rogers & Bro, Rogers, Smith & Co Watrous Mfg.Co, Wilcox Britannia Co, William Rogers Mfg Co, Elizur Webster & Son and many others. The firm was the world’s largest manufacturer of silverware. It ceased hollow-ware production in 1976 selling the hollow-ware business to Oneida in 1981.Boston Light is a lighthouse located on Little Brewster Island in outer Boston Harbour, Massachusetts. The first lighthouse to be built on the site dates back to 1716, and was the first lighthouse to be built in what is now the United States. The current lighthouse dates from 1783, is the second oldest working lighthouse in the United States (after Sandy Hook Lighthouse in New Jersey), and is the only lighthouse to still be actively staffed by the United States Coast Guard, being automated in 1998 though there is still a keeper acting as a tour guide. The structure was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964.”
