Description

Gorham Silver Company Shrapnel Shell Cocktail Shaker, Circa 1918. Made by the Gorham Silver Company, with all of its original parts. This shaker is one of the tallest ever produced and, as a drink-making kit, it is a model of efficiency. Very tall and sleek. The brass base of the shaker serves as a container for glasses, and is crafted to resemble a WWI-era 18 pounder shrapnel shell. The Shaker ingeniously serves as the shell’s top; crafted of copper and silver plate, it contains a removable interior strainer and is topped by a brass CAP. Regarded among the ultimate cocktail collectibles, this beautiful mixer eloquently articulates the Art Deco fascination with flight and style. This model is featured on page 22 of the cocktail shaker by Simon Khachadourian, circa 1918. Signed with impressed manufacturer’s mark to underside of each section Fac-Simile 18 pounder shrapnel shell patent applied for in America and foreign countries. Gorham was known as one of the finest manufacturers of sterling silver and silver plate in the United States during the 19th century. Throughout its history, the company has received major commissions from the White House and has designed a number of trophies, including the Davis Cup for tennis and the America’s Cup for yachting. Gorham’s artistry, skill and superior quality is still widely recognized both in America and abroad.
