This gorgeous cocktail shaker from Alessi is the epitome of 1920's style.
It was initially attributed to Marianne Brandt (Bruckmanns Silber Lexicon, Munich 1982, and H. Wikmann, Die Neue Sammlung, Munich, 1995) but subsequent studies by Peter Hahn, the director of the Bauhaus Archive, have since seen it attributed to the Swedish designer Sylvia Stave.
The design of this cocktail shaker is a contrast of forms - it has a large spherical body and slender handle and it was originally manufactured between 1920 and 1930 by the C. G. Hallbergs company of Stockholm.
Now manufactured by Alessi it's a true classic in every sense.
Made from polished stainless steel this cocktail shaker forms part of the Alessi Officina collection which includes their most sophisticated, experimental and innovative products, as well as small-scale and limited productions.
