Just watching Dickinsons real deal,ITV UK TV (sad i know
) 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
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
Great thing about Sky plus, heres some photos !!
( I cant possibly imagine theres any copyright problems ! )
