This is an unusual model from the famed house of Puiforcat, known for so much of the best Art Deco silver. The design is very strong and “muscular”. It dates from 1925, and is in massive sterling silver and Macassar ebony. We also have the rare matching large coffee pot posted, which is part of the set — have a look. Five piece sets are quite rare.
