William Lescaze, Rome Ny Revere Copper Salt, Pepper Art Deco, Aluminum For Sale

William Lescaze, Rome Ny Revere Copper Salt, Pepper Art Deco, Aluminum

Offered for sale is a very rare and unique salt and pepper set made by Revere Copper and Brass company of Rome, NY. It was designed by William Lescaze and produced by Revere. It was called 'duet'. Each measure 2 inches wide by5/8 inches thick and 1 3/4 inches tall. They are made of aluminum in a simplistic Art Deco style. They each are marked inside and are number 8637 -2 and 8637 -4. There is also a small logo type thing hard to picture. They have a solid marked REVERE aluminum bottomthat slides in and out for easy filling. Not many of these survived due to the aluminum oxidizing. These sport animperfection as seen on the pepper on the top edge which looks like a small fleck in the making, but appear to be in nice condition otherwise.We think these were made previous to the ones I just listed a short while back that had a dark bakelite bottom. Maybe the bakelite was an attemp to prevent oxidation in the metal.

This is the second one of these sets I have listed and was found by a friend who has picked up a lot of REVERE through the years, living close to Rome NY where it was made. The metal slides have a stop on this pair whereas the last ones with bakelite could slide either direction. The first ones were numbered 9367-2 and 3. * the last picture is of the previous pair listed showing the bakelite bottom.

William Lescaze was a Swiss Born architect and designer active in both the US and France. Following WWI,he spent two years working on projects for the Committee of the Reconstruction of Devastated France, before immigrating to the US in 1920. After initially working as a draftsman in Cleveland he set up his own architecture practice in NY. His best known design is the 1929-32 Philadelphia Savings Fund Society Building, with which he collaborated with George Howe. Other buildings were studios for Columia Broadcasting system and 1930-31 Frederic Vanderbilt house in Connecticut. Though mainly an architect, he designed decorative arts and metal work including a clock, desk set, coat rack, desks, chairs and ceiling lights and michrophones for CBS. He is credited with design of the DUET salt and pepper shakers introduced in the 1935 Revere's catalog. These are starting low so all interesed parties can have a "shake" at them. Get it? shake? salt and pepper! starts at $29.99.

I added a shot of the inside of these and I do not see any corrosion.
