13.  Pewter Candlestick (Nekrassoff??)

     Mystery candlestick:  Pewter top, handle and candle rest.  Copper base.  Stamped signature on bottom.  Note the quality of the stylized flower under the candle socket.  Then notice the poor quality of applied vine curling around base.  The "vine" is smudged, spread out, and poorly applied.  Is this a possible apprentice piece??  The mixing of copper and pewter adds some interesting questions, also.  Was this made when pewter was expensive and therefore copper was used on the base?  Or was the copper just a scrap piece laying around the shop and used to fill in the base?  It's an interesting piece, even if not stylistically the usual quality of the Nekrassoff shop.  Size: 4" diameter base; 3 1/4" high at handle; 2" high at candle socket top.  Condition:  Good to excellent - few scratches on pewter.   Base copper piece scratched from use.  Purchased in the fall of 1998 for $27.00 

 


14. Black enamelled copper dish with braided pewter and cherry and leaf design. Signed Nekrassoff. Manufacture Date: Post WWII.  Purchased in 2000 at an antique shop in Maine for $70



15. Nekras Lamp!  Yes! An early piece from ca. 1925 when Serge Nekrassoff first began marketing his pieces under the name Nekras.  The piece is hammered pewter, with a raised emblem design and stamped "Nekras PEWTER 101".  The shade is an old paper replacement with horse riders and similar emblem shapes that worked well together.  The piece was purchased on eBay in the late winter for @ $160.  We had the lamp rewired, but that was all.  It stands about 7 inches from base to bottom of light socket and is about 6 inches in diameter.  A beautiful piece from Nekrassoff's early work!
