Not on view

An overt allusion to New York's skyline, the Manhattan cocktail set represents the 1930s fascination with urbanity and modernity. This tall, cylindrical cocktail shaker and its accompanying stemmed cups (see MMA 1998.537.12–.17) can be arranged like architectural elements on the stepped serving tray (see MMA 1998.537.18), which provides a plazalike platform.
