  1. Hi again
    I found this stunning piece,,,well in MHO,,, and was hoping someone would know if there was a designer attributed. No marks at all. I have simply given it a soft rub to polish it up.
    The main body copper...the other being a white metal strapped with two different colour cords
    Thanks IMG_20200207_111519.jpg for looking

    I've seen lots of fifties stuff with those plastic wire wrapped handles, so I'd agree on that date. That thing is fabulous.

    Reminiscent of Carl Auböck stuff, try a google image search with copper added.

    I'm trying to remember, but my aunt had something around the 50s with that wrapped handle so I agree with Owned.

    I've seen things like biscuit barrels, trays and that sort of thing.

    You ought to do really well with that, but I'd not be able to sell it, it's super.

  16. Hi Anundverkaufen
    just a quick note...i did send an image to Aübock site and they came back to say that it is not one of theirs. So perhaps another will come to light.
    Have a super week
