1930 Art Deco Pattern Noblesse Community Silverplate Holloware (Oneida)
Vintage Large Creamer and Sugar 3 Pc Set
is a very hard to find set. Marked just with Community Noblesse, ( difficult to photograph mark) Oneida is a familiar name to collectors of Sterling and Silverplate. Before 1935, when the present name was adopted , the company was known as Community. Why Community? It reflected the beginnings of the company as a 19th century Utopian Commune. Oneida was one of just a few Silver Companies that offered Silver in the Art Deco Style.
This Beautiful set belong to a Great Aunt. This is the Larger set and I believe rare. T are no monograms. The Sugar with the lid measures approx., 4 1/4" H x 5 1/4" W at the widest. The Creamer measures almost 5" high X 5 1/4" W at the widest. The condition is good with only very light surface scratches. And very light Silver wear. The Silverplate appears to be mainly in tact. The is one very tiny ding to the top of the sugar that is very hard to see. And a tiny rough spot to the side of the sugar, I tried to photograph these but they don't turn out since they are small. This is really a gorgeous and VERY hard to find set. I have check out a few "replacements" web sites and only found one set of these and they were asking 500.00 for the set. As usual starting off low and at no reserve. Please e-mail with questions or if you need additional pictures.
