I have just purchased this Alfred Dunhill Glass & Silver Cocktail Shaker! Has anyone seen anything like this before?? The patent dates it to around 1926? Its cleaned up really well. On the silver top it states Alfred Dunhill. London. Paris. New York. & the patent number, but no hallmarks? it has tested as silver though. I'm interested in any info or if anyone else has seen another one in maybe a different colour?

Patent, or registration number? Whichever, how about telling us, since it could help enormously. Thanks.

I'll try an early guess of S&W......well that's me committed........(probably the men in white coats are on their way already!!).

Andrew I'm afraid you've unwittingly done something that illustrates my point in the other thread perfectly  :thup:

Hello,

Try using the link, then I imagine you'll fall in.

You did not buy from me, but someone (Wayne) who started using the same trading name as mine - a result of the quirks of the internet and the subsequent availability of the name once unsquated.

Or else simply click the link to my website below.

Nigel

Thanks for that! i have searched & found a very similar cocktail shaker body by Stevens & Williams in yellow! & they were registering glass designs in 1926 very close to the number on my piece. It also matches the pat number on the silver which dates it to 1926! So it looks like a S&W shaker made for Dunhill?! I have a Mappin & Webb silver shaker with a top design very similar? im goin to have a look if S&W made any pieces in conjunction with M&W??

Its a lovely item & the £140 spent on it looks like it was a good purchase?

Cheers Andrew

The RD (registered design) number 718885 dates to 8 Feb 1926 and the design was registered by O.S. Middleton (of whom I've never heard before!)

There is another with the same RD number in a different colour/pattern shown here: http://www.great-glass.co.uk/library/lib2ae.htm
