My late April "Corkscrew" find came to me from Philadelphia:
|The leather case containing the cocktail shaker is 10" high. Two cups
and a cover are nested on top of the shaker.
The bottom of the shaker is marked D.R.G.M. 951628. That is a 1926 German Patent.
All parts are marked MADE IN GERMANY.
|At left are the two cups. At right is the cocktail strainer cover. At top is the strainer removed from the shaker. A view of the contents of the shaker is at the bottom.|
|When the shaker is "unpacked" we find:
Now all we need is booze, a blanket and a picnic lunch!
....shake it up and pour!
