Tiffany & Company sterling silver vermouth dispenser that is in the shape of a miniature oil can. The oil can insures that you can easily meter out by the drop and control the amount of vermouth dispensed into your martinis. This vermouth dispenser is approximately 4 inches tall.
The complete oil can has three pieces to it, a well or tank for the vermouth, the dispensing spout and the cap to help inhibit evaporation. Coming apart into these pieces does make filling and cleaning a simple task. The 3 pieces are the "tank", the spout and the often missing, cap that helps prevent evaporation.
This "oil can" is in very good vintage condition with some minor age appropriate wear, but no abuse nor monogramming or other engraving. This vermouth dispense has not been buffed, only hand polished.
This was made as a gift for the gentleman that has everything, a popular fad in the 1960s.
