Guest Book

Extraordinary and rare design. The form has concave, rounded panels upon the sides with a dome top that rises above ridged, horizontal sections at the bottom of the cocktail shaker. An assymetrically mounted, ridged cap is set at an angle. The ridged ring turns to release the strainer cap from its aligned fittings with the use of a spring-like mechanism when turned. Align and press down to re-attach the cap. An important example for the discerning collector. Designed by Folke Arstrom for G.A.B. (Guldsmeds Aktie Bolaget) in Stockholm, circa 1940. 9 5/8" H.
