When we find an interesting piece, we enjoy researching and finding all about its background. Cubism is an early 20th Century movement that revolutionized European painting and sculpture. This inspired related movements in literature, music and architecture.
In Cubist artwork, objects are analyzed, broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form, This is instead of depicting objects from a single viewpoint, and subjecting it from a multitude of viewpoints which represent the piece in a greater context and form. Cubism has been considered the most influential art movement of the 20th century.
The main body and spout is made from copper sheets which has been formed and soldered together. The square base is corrugated with circles and has been used over a open flame. The lid has two vents and a fabulous original Bakelite knob which is angular too. The handle is rivetted which indicated again its quality. The inside is tin lined and is in great condition for its age.
Although there is no makers mark is very much in the manor of Christopher Dresser.
