Lovely F & R Fischer of Göppingen, Germany Brass coffee set circa early 1900's . Bought this for a wedding present , though it will be hard to part with as we both love it. The line and form . Lightly beaten texture to bottom of each piece.
would love to know who the designer was .

    Fabulous! Bellin, I was I could say I knew for certain. I haven't seen this set before, but Peter Behrens would be a logical designer to start with. It might be fruitful to hunt down the production date first, which then can either opt in some designers or exclude others.

    Yep. He's a great picker/collector. I just wish I got there first! ;)

    Hi, most beautiful coffee set, Ozmarty! I don't know who made this, but I have two remarks. 1.) This reminds me very much of Erik Magnussen. 2.) I see that F & R Fischer made some wares as late as 1966. Magnificent and thoughtful wedding present! miKKo

    Hi, Ozmarty. I found a very interesting auction on ebay. Please check it out. The text is very informative and will give you some leads.

    I sent an RFI and a link to your coffee service to the Curator at the Bröhan-Museum/State museum for Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Functionalism (1889-1939) - Berlin.

    Best wishes for success! miKKO

    Wow thanks !! MiKKoChristmas11 . I would love it to be designed by one of my Jugendstil icons .
    Cogito I hope to do more reseach to put a date on this , it appears to me to be 1900 1905 ish just a gut feeling. Went a couple of weks ago to Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt to soak up some great "stil.

    To all the others thanks for saring in my joy of this lovely set. and Stillwater just might do that! (Haha!!)

    Hi, Ozmarty! Just received a reply from Berlin. The email text follows:

    Dear M.....,

    It is not possible to identify the designer. Also the F.&R.Fischer services we have in our collection are classified as “Werkentwurf”.

    Hi miKKoChristmas11 thank you and Claudia so much for all you effort . So Just an Inhouse design. I can see where they got their influences though.
    Still think it will a make a lovely present even if I can't put a designers name on it ...
  12. miKKoChristmas11 miKKoChristmas11, 3 years ago
    Hi, Ozmarty! You're so welcome!

    It will make a splendid present! And the fact that you love it and yet have given it away will make it even more splendid. Best wishes, miKKo
