Keith Murray design for Mappin & Webb circa 1930


Extremely rare Keith Murray design cocktail shaker for Mappin & Webb circa 1930.  See the book “Keith Murray Designer” by Stephen Johnson published by Gemini Publications, pages 119 and 120.  The shaker features an engraved band of people drinking, dancing and generally revelling.  Recipes for 6 cocktails are engraved on the body:  No 1 – Bronx, No 2 – Clove Club, No 3 – Dry Martini, No 4 – Manhattan Dry, No 5 – Sidecar, No 6 – Charley Horse.  The pull off lid reveals a detachable pull out strainer that is secured via two bayonet fittings.  The shaker shows little sign of use.  This is an exceptional quality item as to be expected from Mappin & Webb, and is truly rare.
