Mount Vernon Pewter Griffin Cocktail Shaker

SKU: 25004

The decoration on the top of this pewter cocktail shaker is a three dimensional "griffin" adapted from silver serving pieces used by George and Martha Washington. The Washington family coat-of-arms is surmounted by a "flying griffin," a mythological creature that was featured on the family crest for generations. George Washington placed the crest, a winged lion's body with a bird's head, on many of his most important possessions, including his bookplate, silver plate, and presidential coach. In 1757 Washington acquired a mahogany version of his coat-of-arms, which he placed in the front parlor, "the best room in my house."
The three piece stainless and pewter cocktail shaker with built-in strainer has a 16 ounce capacity and the cap is a one ounce measure. The American made pewter griffin finial tops a fine shaker that is manufactured in England. Total height is approximately 9 ¾" tall with the stopper in place.
Made in the USA by Salisbury Pewter.
