This is a fabulous vintage silver plate cocktail or drinks shaker. It dates to around the 1930s or 40s. It has some nice detailing with a gadrooned border, and inside the spout there is a grill to keep the ice from spilling when drinks are poured. It is stamped Melford M225 EPWM 56 oz on the bottom. A fantastic piece of vintage barware - perfect for entertaining!
It measures a commanding 12 inches tall and it is in good useable condition with some small dings and scratches from its years of service.
