A stunning martini/cocktail shaker by Culver in their "Riviera" pattern. Words can't express how stunning this pattern is; it features the vibrant blue and citron yellow colors in "blocks" outlined by real 22k gold. Truly the epitome of Mid Century Modern glassware.
A quick summary about this glassware maker: Culver was famous for their stunning decorative glassware in 22-karat gold – think lavish and opulent cocktailware of the 1950s and 60s. In the late 1950’s, Culver started the application of the 22-karat gold to their glassware. Fun fact: the super-heated, roll-on process of gold remains a secret today. Culver comes in a variety of patterns including gilded mushrooms, owls, cats, wildlife, Egyptian or Asian inspired design themes, scrolling leaf patterns, holiday designs, sports motifs and many others.
Hallmarks: this shaker is signed "Culver Ltd" in 22k gold Measurements: 9 1/4" tall Condition:
Very good condition. No chips or cracks to the glass and the glass has perfect clarity (no cloudiness). There is extremely minimal wear to the pattern and hardly no gold loss. There are a couple of spots where there are tiny "lines" in the gold (this often happened when the gold wasn't completely dry). The lid is in very good shape but does have some tarnish. In short, this Mid Century shaker is in very, very good vintage condition and displays beautifully. Cheers!
