Vintage silver-plated Art Deco 3-in-1 Bar bar spoon by Napier, Circa 1930s. This spoon serves as a jigger, a bottle opener, and a stirring spoon. This spoon has a gorgeous "graduated" or has a stepped design along with 1/2 oz, 1 1/2 oz and 1 oz indicators. But the patina is what makes this piece so magical. It's patina/story is downright stunning. Truly a magnificent piece.

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: Approx. 9" tall

Maker/year: Napier, 1930s

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

Condition: Very good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear including a tiny ding (about an 1/8" in length) on the right side of the jigger and general surface wear including a tiny scrape on the very bottom of the jigger. The spoon is perfectly straight and the jigger perfectly round. In short, this spoon is in very good vintage condition with signs of age and wear. It displays beautifully.

Cheers!
