A lovely Art Deco chrome cocktail shaker by Manning Bowman, early Mid Century. This shaker has a stunning silhouette and features a wood/pedestal base, wood screw cap, and wood finial. Truly a stunning shaker that displays beautifully.
Maker: Manning Bowman
Condition: Good vintage condition with signs of wear. The chrome shaker itself is in very good condition, no dents or dings, and is extremely vibrant. There's very mild wear to the very bottom of the shaker's interior (see photo #6). The wood accents have noticeable wear. The wood (which is a lighter wood) has as clear enamel finish on it and the clear enamel has work away in a number of places (see photos #4 and #7). The wood handle is secure overall but does have a bit of "give" when push it left or right. Again, it is secured well/tightly by two interior bolts. In short, this 1930s shaker is in good vintage condition with enamel loss to some of the wood accents. Truly a gorgeous piece that displays beautifully.
