A lovely and rare Napier 1-Finger, 2-Fingers double jigger. Napier made a single 1-Finger jigger and a single 2-Fingers jigger and also made a less common version that's connected at the bases. Simply "flip" the jigger to the desired side you need (1 ounce or 2 ounces).. The ounce capacity is etched on each side of each jigger. Truly a neat bar measure.

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 and jiggers.

Measurements: Approx 3 1/2" tall

Maker/year: Napier, early 1950s

Hallmarks: "Napier" can be found on the inside of the short jigger end.

Condition: Very good vintage condition overall but with mild signs of age. We like to be thorough when it comes to our vintage pieces, so here's a full summary:

1) The silver-plating is in good shape overall but does show signs of age and surface wear
2) There's a micro tiny (and we mean tiny, pinhead size) ding on the 1-finger jigger end to the right of the "finger" -- it was nearly impossible to capture in a photo, see photo where our finger is pointing (again it was impossible to capture so we're mentioning it here)
3) There's mild tarnish in a few places (we have not polished this piece)
4) There's noticeable tarnish to both interiors and some minor general "age"

We know the above sounds kit picky as most of it is "general" things due purely to time and age but we like to be thorough. In short, this vintage jigger is in good vintage condition overall but does show signs of age and and mild tarnish. This jigger is a true silver tone. Any "gold hue" you see is from the camera's flash. Truly a stunning measure that has a magical feel to it.
