1920's art deco cocktail shaker

I am sure there is a commandment that tells all not to covert ridiculously overpriced but gorgeous looking art deco-styled goods – just like this £155 cocktail shaker. I like and I want. Apart from a killer G&T I don’t even make cocktails at home!

This gorgeous cocktail shaker from Alessi is the epitomy 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 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. It’s made from polished stainless steel and forms part of the ‘Alessi Officina’ collection which includes their most sophisticated, experimental and innovative products, as well as small-scale and limited productions.”

The Cocktail Shaker is available from Utility Design. They also list an Alessi 2 bottle stainless steel wine cooler too, at £105.

    I have had the same issue…for me it was registering for an Oliver Hemming art deco tea set when I got married.
    It’s beautiful, but…I don’t really drink tea.
    And the pot isn’t a useful one that you can throw on a stove. No stoves allowed, actually. It’s just decorative, to steep tea in after water has been heated in something else.
    Needless to say, it’s gathering dust but it looks quite pretty in its art deco glory!
