Napier Silver-plated Penguin Cocktail Shaker 1936
Item #3432 SOLD
The Iconic Napier Cocktail shaker was designed by Emile Schulke in 1936. The penguin has become one of the most popular figural shakers, this is an original, not a reproduction! It comes with a detachable top and the beak opens up to show the original cork stopper. It is stamped Napier Pat with a number on the bottom and is in amazing original condition and original silver plate, polished and very clean. A very rare model and a must for the advanced cocktail shakers collector!
There is the slightest bump on top which is very hard to see and almost impossible to photograph. Check the 2nd from the last photo.
A recent 2013 Christie’s auction resulted in a sale for one at over 8000 dollars.
From Original Patent Application.
