A gorgeous silver-plated Art Deco cocktail shaker by Birks B.M. Mounts. This shaker features a stunning, raised, 3-D like grape leaves pattern along the upper (we zoomed in to try and capture the raised texture), a footed base, and a multi-textured Art Deco style handle. Truly a breath-taking mixer. Heavier in weight, this shaker is well-crafted and solid. The spout cap still has its original cork inside. Heavier in weight, this shaker is solid and well-crafted. Circa 1920s.

Measurements: Approximately 10 1/2" tall

Hallmarks: "B.M. Mounts" can be found on the bottom of the shaker along with a logo of a seashell and "E.P" Copper" (aka electroplated or silver-plated over copper).

Condition: Good vintage condition overall with signs of age and wear and patina. The patina that's formed on this shaker is magical. Patina/tarnish can be tricky when it's formed over decades so it may or may not polish away. The silver-plating appears to be in very good shape overall. The cork in the cap is in tact but does show a small amount of wear. Here's a quick summary of any flaws we can find:

- the screw cap has a small ding on the top
- there's patina/tarnish
- there's mild wear to the plating on the interior (see photo)

The cap that fits on top of the shaker fits snugly. Again, this shaker has formed a magical patina/look to it that will likely not polish up to a perfect silver. That's part of its magic, but if you're looking for a vintage shaker with no patina, please see our other listings.

**Please Note: we typically do not test our shakers for leakage. We offer a variety of vintage shakers (both usable as well as collectible/display only). We are happy to put our shaker through a thorough leakage test (which involves filling it with liquid and rigorously shaking it) -- please message us if you'd like us to test this particular shaker. Cheers!

**On shipping: We take our packaging very seriously and carefully wrap all pieces to ensure safe delivery.
