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 3-in-1 bar spoons.

Measurements: A tad over 9" tall

Maker/year: Napier, 1930s

Hallmarks: "Napier Pat Pend" is embossed on the back on the spoon

Condition: Good vintage condition with signs of age and wear. Silver-plating often gets a subtle "gold" hue over decades and this bar spoon has it, which adds to its magic factor. This spoon shows age including surface wear, age spots (there are a few hear and there including one of the back of the spoon bed), and some mild patina on the exterior and interior of the jigger portion. There's also a tiny ding (smaller than the size of a pinhead) on the jigger that was impossible to capture in a photo. The jigger is perfectly round and it stands perfectly straight. This spoon displays beautifully.
