A gorgeous and rare set of silver-plated rollover (aka bottoms up, tipping) jigger marked "Patent 115831 17". Simply place the liquor in the jigger, rest the two jigger handles on your glass, and roll the handle over (hence the name "bottoms up") to dump the contents into the shaker or glass. The clean Art Deco design of these jiggers is simply stunning. These jiggers are solid, heavy in weight. This Patent No. 115831 17 for ” Measuring Container”, dated July 25, 1939, was obtained by H. B. Kaempf. This jigger was offered and advertised as “Host” and “Hostess” jiggers with the “Hostess” jigger holding 1 ounce and the “Host” holding 1 and 1/2 ounces. They also made a 2 ounce in this jigger. I've included the vintage ads that were used for these jiggers (see last two photos).

Measurements: the 1 oz measures 5 1/2 in length (so handle to handle); the 1 1/2 os measures just shy of 6", and the 2 oz 6 1/4" Hallmarks: "Patent 115831 17" can be found on the underside of each handle

Condition: Very good vintage condition with signs of age and tarnish. There is general/minimal surface wear and what we refer to as "age" (from oxidation, etc. over the years). Please note: these jiggers have not been polished as some buyers are very particular about as is condition. Zero dents or dings. Truly a stunning and magical set. Cheers!
