Merle F. Faber Quadruple Silverplate Creamer And Sugar Bowl With Lid For Sale

Merle F. Faber Quadruple Silverplate Creamer And Sugar Bowl With Lid

    Merle F. Faber Quadruple Silverplate Creamer and Sugar Bowl with Lid

    DESCRIPTION: I've had this Art Deco creamer and sugar bowl sitting in a box in my basement for at least fifteen years. I didn't pay a lot of attention to it originally since I'd never heard of Merle F. Faber. This past week, when I saw the listings online and noted that the identical set is in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum, I was very pleasantly surprised.

    Once polished, I began to understand why Faber's work is so collectible. The plastic handles give it an Art Deco feel -- but the overall design has a simple elegance and the workmanship is outstanding.

    The creamer is gilded on the interior. It is 1-7/8 inches high and, from the outside edge of the handle to the end of spout, not quite 3-1/4 inches wide. The sugar bowl (including the lid) is 2-1/2 inches high and 2-1/8 inches in diameter. The "Merle F. Faber Products" hallmark is stamped on the underside of both pieces along with a "Quadruple Plate" mark -- but on the creamer, the latter is extremely faint and barely legible.

    FYI: When I tried to date this set, I found a lot of contradictory information about Faber's factory. Some sources, including Artnet, dated his work from 1930-1939. Others, including the Brooklyn Museum, said 1943-1950. I'm going with the latter based on this info I uncovered in Polk's 1944 San Francisco City Directory.

    CONDITION: When viewed on your mantle, dining table or in a museum case, the creamer and sugar will look fabulous with their silvery sheen and no obvious flaws. On close inspection, you will, however, note that the interior of the sugar bowl is heavily worn or stained. I'm not sure which but I doubt this will simply polish out.

    In addition, as partly shown in my last two photos, the plating on the creamer has several dozen minuscule dots which I assume are due to corrosion. These are concentrated mostly around the handle and are clearly visible only in bright light -- but they're definitely there and should be factored into your offers.

    OUR GUARANTEE: Please take note of my 100% positive response and offer with confidence as this item is guaranteed to be just as described and is backed with a full refund if it's been misrepresented in any way.

    POSTAGE: We pride ourselves on our packaging and bend over backwards to minimize postage. First Class postage in the US will be 3.50. Shipping elsewhere will be calculated on an 11 ounce package shipped from zip code 94610.

    California residents, please add 8.75% sales tax.
