Shakers, Pitchers
& Mixers

Southern Comfort cocktail shaker

What a find! A marvelous old stainless steel cocktail shaker in the shape of a whisky bottle, complete with large etched Southern Comfort “label,” in the center of which is a beaded oval containing a highly detailed depiction of a plantation mansion and grounds, with a horse-drawn carriage coming up the drive and a Mississippi steamboat out on the river. Above are the words “Southern Comfort, Reg. U.S. Pat. Off., Cocktail Shaker”, and below the proclamation “The stainless steel cocktail shaker that pours like a bottle.” Below that are the words “Southern Comfort Corporation, St. Louis, Missouri U.S.A.” Standing 11-1/2" high with a diameter of 3-1/2", this large shaker is composed of four parts: the 6" tall base, the 4-3/4" tall pour spout that fits into the base, the 1-1/2" tall cap that fits into the spout, and the 3-1/2" diameter strainer that fits into the spout base via three metal clamps. Base bottom is marked “Craft Stainless Steel, Chicago”. All pieces are in excellent condition with no dents or dings, but some usage scratching and scuffage, particularly where the pieces fit together. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Sunbeam Art Deco chrome & bakelite pitcher

What a gorgeous Art Deco pitcher! Its shiny chrome finished exterior is encircled by 4 inlaid bands of black bakelite and it also has a black bakelite handle and lid knob. Pitcher stands 7-1/2" tall at its graceful spout lip with diameters of 3-1/4" at its mouth and 3-3/8" at its base. It measures 6" across from its spout to its 4-3/4" long black bakelite handle that’s vertically ribbed for easy gripping and lifting – a very good idea since this heavy pitcher weighs 28-1/2 oz empty! Flip-open hinged lid is marked “Sunbeam” and the pitcher bottom says “Chicago Flexible Shaft Company, Chicago, U.S.A., Design Patent No. D-92668” with another 6 underneath. Chicago Flexible Shaft Company, founded in the early 1890s, became Sunbeam in 1946. The pitcher design was patented in 1934 by Michael W. McArdle. Perfect size for a bar pitcher, this Art Deco beauty is in great vintage condition with no dings or dents. A few little rough places on the spout and around the rim where the lid has come in constant contact with it. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Crystal cocktail pitcher

This is a sleek, tapered pressed glass cocktail pitcher with applied handle that stands 10-1/2" tall with diameters of 2-1/4" at the mouth and 3-1/2" at the base. Bottom is marked with an I in an oval (the Owens-Illinois mark), the number 1, and several additional marks in the center that I am unable to make out. Around the bottom perimeter are the words “Federal law prohibits sale or re-use of this bottle”. Oops again! Pitcher has no nicks or chips, but there is a v-shaped hairline crack on the bottom and some scaling on the interior surfaces. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Green blown glass wine server

Here’s a unique vintage wine decanter. Have you ever seen one like it before? Apparently it’s a wine server that was given as a hostess gift for having a Princess House home party in the early 1970's. Or at least that was the story that went with the only other one I’ve seen. But that story may be totally incorrect. A kind site visitor named Carolyn sent us an email relating her own story about one of these decanters that her parents owned well before the 1970’s! Isn’t research fun?

This decanter is made of green blown glass, has plenty of neat little air bubbles, and at 13" tall and 7" in diameter at its widest point, is nothing short of huge! And did you notice its large interior compartment accessed through the 1-3/4" diameter opening on the back? That’s where you put crushed ice to keep the wine cool before pouring it from the gracefully curved spout in front. Pretty clever, huh? On the other hand, this decanter belonged to Ol’ Swaphos’ mama and she always used it as a vase, putting a separate little nosegay in the “ice” compartment. Made a lovely display.

Other than some slight roughness at one place on the edge of its rolled mouth, this decanter is in excellent condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. The interior shows some cloudiness and contains some stuck-on remnants of flower stems, but should clean up with a good long soaking. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Leaded glass cocktail pitcher

This vintage leaded glass cocktail pitcher with applied handle stands 11-1/2" tall, measures 5-1/4" from spout to handle, and has diameters of 4-1/2" at its widest point and 3-1/2" at its base, which features a deeply mitered 16-point star. Three rows of cut 8-point stars encircle the exterior. Unmarked as to maker. No nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches, but considerable interior cloudiness that we have been unable to get out. It disappears as soon as the pitcher is filled with liquid, but reappears with a vengeance when it’s empty and dry. We tried to get pictures both ways so you can see the difference. Obviously the solution here is to keep this pitcher full at all times! It’s such a beautiful heavy piece,  I just don’t understand how someone could have abused and neglected it, but sadly, they did, and our price reflects the damage. If perfect, this leaded glass cocktail pitcher would be worth considerably more. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Brass cocktail pitcher

This tall cylindrical brass cocktail pitcher has a sleek mid-century modern look. It stands 10-3/4" tall at its small pouring spout, sloping to 9" tall at the back of its ice guard top. Diameter is a hair over 3". Handle is composed of a lovely 5-1/8" long dark wood piece that encases upper and lower brass tabs bent at 90-degree angles. Bottom is incised “Made in Italy.” Excellent vintage condition with no dents or dings. Some spotting on the exterior of the ice guard and pitcher interior shows definite past usage but no damage.

Gay Fad “Vintage” martini pitcher

This huge (10-1/2" tall) clear glass martini pitcher is a wonderful example of Gay Fad’s beautiful “Vintage” design that features gold and white Greek figures and symbols on turquoise panels. This one’s center panel features a barefoot Greek lady with her large basket of grapes and the top and bottom panels depict mythological Greek animals. Gold and white grape clusters border the panel trilogy at top right and bottom left. “Vintage” was one of Gay Fad’s later designs. The only place I’ve seen it shown is in a Gay Fad ad from the August, 1956 edition of Gift and Art Buyer that pictures a set of two Vintage decanters, one with a female figure and the other with a male figure, in a brass tantalus, a lockable frame. The ad says Vintage comes in turquoise and gold, but I have seen a variation of this same design in pink and gold. Our martini pitcher stands 10-1/2" tall with diameters of 3" at its pour-spout rim and 2-7/8" at its unmarked base. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or paint loss. Requires hand washing to keep it that way! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Gay Fad “Gay Nineties” cocktail pitcher

This frosted cocktail pitcher is one of Gay Fad’s “Here’s To” series from the “Gay Nineties” line of glassware. The front depicts a hand-painted full-color Victorian couple all dressed up for party-going and says “Ours” above them. (Makes me wonder if this pitcher wasn’t originally part of a Gay Fad “Cocktails for Two” set with two glasses that said “You” and “Me” respectively.) The back contains not just one, but three “Here’s To” rhymes:

“Here’s to us! So fine, so fair, Just we two – A charming pair!”
“To you and me, In quiet bliss, Let’s have a drink, And settle this.”
“Here’s to us! Scotch or Rye? You’d be like me, If you’d just try!”

Pitcher stands 6" tall with diameters of 3-1/4" at its pour-spout rim and 2-1/2" at its unmarked base. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or paint loss. Requires hand washing to preserve the paint and the finish. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Gay Fad “Chief Lohocla” recipe mixer

This is a frosted Gay Fad recipe mixer in the “Chief Lohocla” design, introduced in a March, 1949 Crockery & Glass Journal ad with ad copy reading “Chief Lohocla (meaning alcohol). . .depicts scenes in the life of an amusing and very gay little Indian.” Here the dancing Chief is shown in 7 different poses above the recipes for 7 different drinks: Manhattan, Martini, Bacardi, Tom Collins, Daiquiri, Whiskey Sour, and Cuba Libre. Numbers on the back measure from 1 to 14 ounces. Gay Fad recipe mixers come in a variety of designs and were part of Gay Fad’s “Here’s How” line of barware and accessory pieces introduced in 1951. Mixers were usually sold with several bar tools. Our Chief Lohocla mixer stands just shy of 6" tall with diameters of 3-1/2" at the rim and 2-3/8" at the base. Bottom carries Federal’s F in a shield mark. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, scratches or loss of color. Requires hand washing to preserve the paint and finish.

Gay Fad “Here’s How” recipe mixer

This clear glass Gay Fad recipe mixer features 7 red and black caricatures above 7 different drink recipes: Scotsman in kilts above Whiskey Sour; sophisticated gentleman in top hat and tails above Manhattan; dancing señor above Bacardi; dancing senorita above Daiquiri, inebriated gentleman with his arm wrapped around a bent lamppost above Tom Collins; gentleman in tux with cane above Martini; and king in robe and crown above Alexander. Numbers on the back measure from 1 to 12 ounces and instructions say “multiply ingredients by number of drinks.” Gay Fad recipe mixers come in a variety of designs, but this particular one never appeared in any of our Gay Fad catalogs or ads, so we don’t know its official name. Recipe mixers were part of Gay Fad’s “Here’s How” line of barware and accessory pieces introduced in 1951. Mixers were usually sold with several bar tools. (Donna McGrady owns a very similar recipe mixer that came with a long-handled stirring spoon, a lime squeezer, and a bottle opener.) Our mixer stands 6-3/8" tall with diameters of 3-1/8" at the rim and 2-1/2" at the thick weighted base. We have two of these mixers and price is for each. Both are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or paint loss. They are identical except for the manufacture’s mark on their respective bottoms. One carries the Hazel Atlas mark, indicating that Gay Fad decorated it some time between 1951 and 1956. The other carries the Continental Can Company triple C mark, indicating that Gay Fad decorated it some time between 1956 (the year Continental Can took over Hazel Atlas) and 1962 (the year Gay Fad went out of business). Both of our mixers require hand washing to preserve the paint. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
