The highly-sought, original Zeppelin cocktail shaker. Crafted with precision in Solingen, Germany, circa 1930. Difficult-to-find example, complete with its 19 parts, which compactly fit together. Parts include shaker body, juicer/strainer, strainer cover, flask, funnel, four graduated tumblers, corkscrew with cover, gondola, four ice picks/spoons, shaker top and finned condiment bowl with lid. Nickel-plated with gilded interiors. Recently a Zeppelin was included in the Smithsonian's Cooper Hewitt exhibit, The Jazz Age. An example of this famous design is in the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The Zeppelins were made by J.A. Henckels. Marks include D.R.G.M. as well as Germany on many parts. 12" H.
