Thanks very much Ken   :hiclp: :hiclp: :hiclp:
Youve helped me get very close on this one, after 2 years!
Not much doubt that Rockwell did most and probably all of the Metalwork,
colours and Tango i reckon date it to circa 1920.
Glass , Bohemian, i presume the blanks imported to the USA, it would be nice to confirm
maker of glass, im leaning towards Harrachov, after having a bee in my bonnet for Loetz all this time,
sorry about that everyone whos helped me :-[ !
I think mines a lot more impressive than the Blue one in Kens link!
I will think what to do with it now, maybe look out for a good Art Deco auction in London some time,
It deserves to go to a keen Deco collector ;D

All views on the signature,welcome.
Thanks all,
Andy

Deco collector here!!  See my site; http://decoqueen.fortunecity.com/index.html. Mod: Link not working 

I drool over these sets every time I see one but they are always over my price range  :cry:.  The link for the cobalt one is the American site that some of us belong to so if anyone ever has time to roam around our unknowns and ID them just let me know!!   ;)

Just watching Dickinsons real deal,ITV UK TV (sad i know  :P)  another of these cocktail shakers just came up, the dealer
 on the show, Michael Hogben, straight away took out the top bits, the pourer and bits, and says that doesnt go with
the vase !! Ha Ha! He liked it , offered 250 and didnt want the discarded top ! The seller refused, and went to auction,
he had a reserve of 500, got to 480, (with the complete shaker parts! )  lots of interest and Dickinson thought it was worth
500.
The seller had raised his reserve from 400. His Father found it many many years ago, during the war when he worked in
London doing a bit of wheeling and dealing !
More silvering than mine, but apparently the red finial is bakerlite, not as nice as mine !

Just had a good idea  ;D  Great thing about Sky plus, heres some photos !!

Rockwell would not have added any markings but theirs & your shaker is relatively well known to be Czech over here simply by the "made in" mark. Rockwell used Czech imports from time to time & was in business to at least 1950 as blanks have been found decorated by them that didn't exist until that time. Very high quality shaker set that commands good money over here. Bye the way the guy on your UK show must be dim witted although I will have to admit I've seen a few of the bottoms in malls where sellers were trying to move them as vases.
