Margaret Thatcher's Handbags
Margaret Thatcher was famous for her beautiful handbags. Her black Asprey bag was at her side during some of the most important summits with President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.
Vintage 'Joy bell' cocktail shaker in sterling silver, first patented by Asprey in the 1930's.
The timeless ‘Joy Bell’ cocktail shaker was first introduced to Asprey’s range of barware in 1932. Its distinctive design is instantly recognisable. The handle of the bell unscrews, allowing ice and cocktail ingredients to be placed within. Once shaken, the drink may be poured through the strainer at the top of the handle, once the removable section at the end is detached.
Today’s designs are made by Asprey’s silversmiths in our workshops above 167 New Bond Street to exacting standards, using precious sterling silver. Each shaker is assayed and hallmarked, providing assurance of the silver’s purity, as well as the name of the maker and date of creation. As with all our handmade cocktail shakers, each piece is the result of hours’ of skilled craftsmanship.
Based above our store on New Bond Street, London, the Asprey workshops are unique. All products are guaranteed.More about the workshops
