Although its origin can be traced back to 7000 BC in pre-Hispanic Mexico and South America, the cocktail shaker as we know it was actually invented in the mid 19th century in a tavern in London. It was during the 1920's, the prohibition era in the US, that cocktail shakers became more fashionable, and this coupled with stylish art deco design, makes cocktail shakers from this period the most sought after.
