A stunning Mid Century Hazel Atlas Pink "Musical Pigs" cocktail shaker. Such a magical pattern, which originated in the 50s, of a whimsical scene of pink enameled dancing pigs, musical instruments, and music notes. We tried to capture all sides of the pattern (of a pig playing a saxophone, a cello, a guitar, etc). Truly a magical, figural pattern that screams Mid Century!

A bit of history on this glassware maker: The Hazel-Atlas Glass Company was a large producer of machine-molded glass containers headquartered in Wheeling, West Virginia. It was founded in 1902 in Washington, Pennsylvania. Hazel Atlas became industrious in formulating unique colors into design. One of the hallmarks of Hazel-Atlas glass after World War II is the prevalence of fired-on patterns and designs, many created by Gay Fad Decorating Company. Glasses, especially whiskey and highball tumblers, as well as cocktail shakers to match, were decorated with dancing sailors, hats, windmills, maple leaves, daisies, musical instruments, and flying geese. Their most notable design collections include pink and white polka-dots and pink elephants.

Hallmarks: for this particular pattern the Hazel Atlas logo (a circle with an H inside of it) was embossed on particular pieces like the smaller drinking glasses but not on certain sized glasses or the ice bucket or the cocktail shaker. So this shaker not bare the embossed H logo.

Maker/pattern/year: Hazel Atlas, Musical Pigs, 1950s

Condition: Excellent condition. The glass is clear, zero chips, or nicks. The enameled pattern is a vibrant pink and in great shape (please note: this pattern has an intentional "break" in a few places on the bands to create a vintage look; this is 100% intentional and not from wear). The chrome lid is in very, very good vintage condition. This shaker has been in a display cabinet for decades and likely not made an actual cocktail. Truly a lovely piece.

**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!
