Sterling Maciel Cocktail Shaker Huge 46.3oz Scrap?

Sterling Silver Maciel Cocktail Shaker/Mixer .925

Description:
This auction is for a classic Mexican sterling cocktail shaker by Maciel, in their classic rose pattern. The piece is by far the most massive shaker we have seen, weighing 46.3 ounces, or 1312 grams. The shaker is a massive 11 1/2" tall. Interestingly, when the lid screws off, you are unable to pour liquid into the shaker, which leads us to believe that this piece may be purely ornamental and not functional. Either way it is gorgeous.

Condition:
The piece is in excellent condition. T are no dings, dents, or repairs. We only mention "scrap" in the title due to the extreme weight of the piece, and to bring your attention to the fact that the bullion value of the piece is well over $500.00. Light polishing is needed.
