This is a beautiful Cocktail Shaker that I picked up at an Estate Sale. I was going to fill it with a pitcher of Cosmos and take it to the daughter of the Parents that she was closing up their estate but, I forgot where she told me she lived. So Lou, if your reading this contact me and we'll have those Cocktails!
Of the many lessons in life that I have learned, to make ones life easier, but yet still have the gleam and sparkle use Stainless Steel and Chrome rather than Silverplate! No tarnish! How many times I'll be entertaining guest and need a serving spoon, a tray or something with sparkle and have to polish it before using it, only for it to tarnish again before the next time I need it. No my friends, Stainless and Chrome are the way to go! Shiny 70 years later! I'm guessing that this beauty is from the 1930-1950 era with its Deco Style and ornate bakelite handle. Stamped on the bottom Krome-Kraft Farber Bros. New York. I was able to find some history on the Farber brothers;

Brothers Louis and Harry Farber were born in Russia in the late 19th century and immigrated to the United State just after the turn of the 20th century.
Louis and Harry began working for S. W. Farber, their older brother who sold products under the name Farberware. In 1915 they formed their own company, using the trade name Farber Brothers Krome-Kraft.
Many collectors mistakenly believe that Farberware and Farber Brothers are synonymous, but despite the fact that all three were brothers, there was in fact no relationship between the two companies. Farberware is still in business today.
Louis and Harry decided to make hollow-ware and brass products that they could sell at competitive prices in the market, a business concept that was successful for nearly fifty years.

By the 1950s, as Farber Brothers’ famed non-tarnishing chrome holders went out of style, brass versions were introduced to try and compensate for lower unit sales. The brass models sold well but only for a brief period and overall sales continued to decline until 1965, when the company shut down operations.

And now you have the rest of the story. Our little piece of history measures about 10 1/2 inches tall and from handle to spout is about 7 1/2 inches. Top pulls off for ease of prep and the strainer is built into the spout which has a screw on top. Everything is in excellent condition.
