A quick bit of history on Napier: The Napier Company was named after its president, James H. Napier, who led the company from 1920 to 1960. But the company's history can be tracked back to 1875 when it was founded as Whitney and Rice in Attleboro, Mass., manufacturing silver products. The firm changed hands and name in 1882 and became Carpenter and Bliss and shortly thereafter, E.A. Bliss and Co., Inc. After rapid expansion in the late 1880s the company moved to Meriden, CT in 1890. After WWI, the firm shifted emphasis from silver products to production of modern jewelry. James Napier became president in 1920 and the company adopted the name Napier - Bliss Co. In 1922, the name was changed to Napier Company. Like many jewelry companies Napier got into lines of art objects and other utilitarian objects like cocktail shakers. In the early to mid 1930s they started producing several cocktail shakers (most notably the "Dial a Drink shaker" and the Rooster motif shaker) other pieces of barware including their well-known graduated/stepped jigger, the mechanical/valve jigger, one-finger and two-fingers jiggers, and a variety of Art Deco style barware including this jigger.

Condition: Very good vintage condition with mild but noticeable signs of age. Overall the silver-plating is in good shape, but there is some mild "splotchiness" in a few areas (it's very subtle but tends to occur in some vintage silver-plated pieces). Please note: we have not polished this piece. There's also some very mild tarnish in the spokes of the jigger. The interior jiggers are clean and in excellent condition. No dents or dings. In short, this jigger is in good vintage condition with mild signs of age. Truly a lovely measure.

Hallmarks: "Napier" is embossed in very tiny letters on one of the spokes

Measurements: Approx. 7" tall
