Continuing our series on gentlemanly accessories of yore, when smoking and drinking were actually cool instead of just cool because of Mad Men, we bring you some nautical cocktail classics.
Re-issued, copied, knocked off, but never duplicated, these were made by Asprey of London in the 1930s, when how you drank was more important than what, now available from London style emporium the Pullman Gallery.
Sterling silver fittings are set off by ruby-colored glass denoting “port,” emerald glass denoting
“starboard” and, rarest of all, a clear glass example representing a “masthead” lantern.
