Charles S. Green & Co English Art Deco Sterling Muffineer, Birmingham, England, c. 1933


This stunning muffineer is a rare piece of Art Deco silver made at the height of the Great Depression. Its geometric design is architectural, bold and exciting. Of tapered octagonal paneled form, this caster rests on four geometrically stepped feet, each with triangular knees attaching to a panel. This triangular motif is continued around the neck of the top. The neck protrudes over the paneled sides playing with our sense of depth. The triangular devices are actually two triangles on top of each other, the outermost being slightly smaller giving a stepped effect to the devices. Once again, this challenges our sense of depth and frames the planes of the design. The top is pierced in a wonderful geometric design with a finial of octagonal paneled form, reflecting the design of the body. A rare and wonderful piece of silver.

The muffineer measures 5.5 inches high, 2.75 inches in diameter and weighs approximately 8 troy ounces. It is Inscribed in the center of one panel with an "A" in an Old English style, then "1911-1936" in a cursive script. It is in excellent condition.
