The Blue Moon Cocktail Set; shaker, tray and cups, was produced from 1935 to 1941, but only for the first year with the, now hard to find, “shot measure ball top” before changing to a solid serrated flat top.

Originally selling for $9.95 and advertised by Macy’s in December of 1935 as “ For Moderns’ on your list, a clever cocktail set.” , had by December of 1941 soared in price to $11.00

The cocktail shaker can be seen in the first 20 seconds of the 1974 movie Chinatown, set in 1937 Los Angeles. It’s in the bar of the private-eye played by Jack Nicholson in this Hammett-Chandler style mystery.
