Up for Bid

Up for bid at local Chicago auction house, Wright, is a vast collection of vintage and pristine cocktail shakers. As part of the bi-Annual Modern Design sale, they're easily overlooked - nestled in with the likes of Prouvé, Eames, Knoll and Wegner.  I've never seen anything like them - both cheeky and highbrow. I urge you to click through and take a look at the lot, or better yet see them in person (1440 W. Hubbard) at the preview from October 11-17. The auction is October 18 and estimates start at $1500 per shaker - making them a bit too valuable to use, and relegating these cocktail tools to art, not craft.

 Thanks to Franny for the tip!
