A lovely Art Deco Manning Bowman cocktail shaker. This vintage shaker features a vibrant chrome finish and a walnut wood finial, screw cap, and handle. Truly a stunning Art Deco style shaker. The photos don't do it justice and we'll likely re-shoot it. Heavier in weight, this shaker has a solid feel to it. Truly a lovely Art Deco-esque shaker. We're also selling the matching chrome cocktail pitcher by Manning Bowman. See other listings.
Hallmarks: "Manning Bowman, Meriden, Conn, USA" is embossed on the bottom of the shaker along with the Patent Number. (97979)
Condition: Fair/good vintage condition. Overall, this shaker is in very good vintage condition but we're including "fair" in the summary as there's some surface wear (including micro fine scratching here and there) and general age. The chrome is in good shape but does show surface and and when looking up close a "splotchiness"in some areas (this happens to some chrome over the course of decades). There's also a small scrape just below the pour spout. The lid fits snugly. The screw cap works perfectly. The interior is in good shape overall with mild signs of age. In short, this vintage shaker is in fair/good vintage condition (due to age). Truly a magical vintage shaker that displays beautifully.
