Product Description

Impress your friends with the pour-and-press feature of this piece of American ingenuity. The chrome Art Deco-style jigger is designed with a rod studded with a red bakelite bead on each end that rests on the edge of a glass. The mechanism at the base of the jigger releases the measured contents of the jigger. A gentle push and voila, your liquor’s in the glass. This bartending tool was invented with the home mixologist in mind, making it easier to pour, measure, and dispense with accuracy and without spillage. 

Made by the Fay Products Company in San Francisco in the 1930s and through the 1940s, the valve opens and closes smoothly and easily just like it did during America’s Golden Age of the Home Bar.

The valve opens and closes smoothly and easily. This jigger, essential to the home bar, measures 2 1/4″ high by 1 3/4 and holds 3/4 oz. The arms measure 3 1/8″ across and will only work with small glasses. It is in great condition with minor signs of age and use.
