Tiffany & Co. Sterling Cocktail Shaker, c. 1890's

Tiffany & Co. Sterling Cocktail Shaker, c. 1890's

This rare cocktail shaker is one of the finest examples of acid engraving executed on silver that we have ever had. detail of Tiffany & Co. Sterling Cocktail Shaker, c. 1890's The exotic design of the surrounding background and the detail  of a shooting scene are superb.  Reminiscent of designs made famous by William Morris in the late 19th century, the background is acid etched with lovely panels of arts and  crafts style leaves and flowers on a stippled, grainy background.  Designed in 1889, the organic and fluid movement of these plants predates the American arts and crafts movement by about a decade.

The large hunting scene on the front depicts two sporting dogs (pointers, we believe) pointing in a field. In the background are two gentlemen with shotguns approaching.   The back cartouche is engraved with a 'LGN' monogram in a script style.  The removable lid has a built-in strainer/ pourer.monogram on Tiffany & Co. Sterling Cocktail Shaker, c. 1890's
