An Art Deco cocktail arrangement of chrome, silver, and black.

The geometric black tray is Micarta, a laminate similar to bakelite, produced by Westinghouse in the 1930's. The plastic tray is inset with anodized and dyed aluminum, streamlined shapes. The design is often attributed to industrial designer, Walter Dohner, although similar trays for Westinghouse have been attributed to designer George Switzer:

The sleek, rare conical cocktail shaker was designed and patented in 1934 by Emil Schuelke for The Napier Company in Meriden, Connecticut. It is silver plated. The streamline design is truly modern by even today's standards. Schuelke also designed the famous Napier penguin cocktail shaker.

The chrome conical cocktail cups are from the Evercraft giftware line of the Everedy Company of Frederick, Maryland (circa 1930's).

The chrome J-shaped candle holders are from an unknown manufacturer, but resemble Chase. They offset some original Zeppelin artwork--all circa 1930's.
