A lovely martini shaker set by West Virginia Glass Co., Mid Century. This is one of our favorite West Virginia patterns and features "liquor/spirit graphics" that include "Vodka" "Rum"" Bourbon" "Gin" "Brandy" in rich black and vibrant gold along with specific recipes i.e. "Martini" "Tom Collins" "Rob Roy" -- along with gold "starburst" or Atomic style stars. Similar to Culver and other Mid Century Modern glassware makers, West Virginia used real 22k gold in their paint/patterns. This set would be lovely on a bart cart! The pictures don't do the pattern/graphics justice! We attempted to capture just how stunning it truly is by taking photos in two different lighting settings. Truly a stunning set.

We also have a set of 8 highball glasses in this same pattern as well as the smaller version of this cocktail shaker, if you'd like a larger set. See other listings. Cheers!

A bit about this vintage manufacturer: West Virginia Glass Specialty Company (WVGS) was based in Weston, West Virginia and created some of the most stunning glassware from 1929-1987 and was especially well-known for their hand-blown glass. In the 1950s and 60s, WVGS created a number of heavily embossed and/or Hollywood Regency style patterns that, similar to Culver, contained real 22k gold in the paint. These glasses do not bare a permanent hallmark but came with a gold foil sticker that said "West Virginia Glass Company" that was typically removed by the buyer after purchase.

Hallmarks: None

Measurements: Approx. 9 3/4" tall

Condition: Good vintage condition overall with mild signs of age. This shaker doesn't appear to have seen much (if any) use. The graphics are vibrant. The gold lid is vibrant. There's some very, very mild "age" that comes purely from time, not use i.e. some very minor age to the bottom interior of the gold lid and a few spots of discoloration on the side of the exterior lid. We attempted to show these areas of the lid in a photo, but couldn't capture it properly, so we're mentioning it here. There's some very minor "surface wear" on the bottom of the shaker (purely from handling, being set down, etc). Great glass clarity (no cloudiness). In short, this shaker is in good vintage condition with mild signs of general age. It displays beautifully.

**Please Also 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!

**On shipping: We take our packaging very seriously and carefully wrap all pieces to ensure safe delivery. If purchasing multiple pieces, we'll combine shipping to a single box (or as few boxes as possible) and will automatically reimburse you for all shipping overages paid.

****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. Our items are true vintage pieces that might have manufacturers flaws, flaws from age, or imperfections in general from being vintage. 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..
