A lovely vintage silver-plated Gorham enameled "Stoplight" jigger. Gorham made this figural jigger in sterling silver as well as a silver-plated version (which they also did for a number of their other barware pieces including their decanter/liquor tags). Heavy in weight, this jigger is nothing short of magical. The enameled stoplight colors include green, yellow and red meant to signify "go," "caution," and "stop." Each light corresponds to the 1, 2 1/2, and 3 1/2 ounce markings on the jigger's bottom. Heavier in weight, this jigger has a solid feel to it. Truly a magical figural jigger.

A little bit about this maker: Jabez Gorham started Gorham silver in 1831 in a shop on Steeple Street in Providence, Rhode Island. Born to a family of eight, he was apprenticed to New England silver patriarch Nehemiah Dodge at a very early age. Dodge is known as one of the founders of the silver and jewelry crafts industry in 18th century New England. After his seven-year apprenticeship with Dodge, Jabez formed his own business and quickly established a name for himself. For more than 150 years Gorham Silver has been known as one of the preeminent silversmith companies in the world and well-known for their vintage barware items including this stoplight jigger.

Measurements: Approx 2 1/2" tall x a tad over 2 1/4" in diameter

Maker/year: Gorham, 1950s

Hallmarks: "Gorham EP YC 1192" can be found on the bottom of the jigger along with the jigger's original foiled sticker.

Condition: Very, very good vintage condition with very mild signs of age. We like to be thorough when it comes to our vintage pieces, so here's a full summary:

1) There's mild tarnish to the exterior in a few places (we have not polished this piece)
2) There's some tarnish to the interior of the jigger (see photo)
3) There's one micro tiny (smaller than a pinhead) scratch on the bottom of the jigger
4) There's very, very mild but general what we call "surface wear" to the bottom of the jigger (likely not from use but purely from handling and/or storage).

The silver-plating is in very good shape overall and vibrant. The enameled dots are pristine (no wear or age). In short, this vintage jigger is in good vintage condition with very mild signs of age and wear. It displays beautifully. Cheers.

If you buy multiple pieces/sets, we will combine shipping if possible (glassware sets typically ship in their own box to ensure safe arrival) and will reimburse you for any shipping overages.

****Important to note pre-purchase: Buyers, please examine all photos carefully as we cannot accept returns due to the fragile nature (the possibility of breakage or damage when being shipped back) of our vintage/antique pieces.

We try to explain the condition/description in an accurate and thorough manner but we ask that you please examine all photos carefully and ask all questions before purchasing an item as we are unable to accept returns due to the risk of breakage/damage.
