These are three 1950 magazine advertisements for Buenilum hammered aluminum ware made by the Buehner-Warner Company, NY.
The first picture ad is a hostess service snack server which contained three 1-quart Pyrex bowls with Buenilum covers nestled in a matching 16" diameter base which could contain either electrically heated water or ice. The second pictured ad is a two-tier lazy susan (lower tier 20" diameter). The third pictured ad is a tidbit service, a 10" cake plate and cake server. The Beaumonde Brass fruit bowl and 10" high vases were also made by Buehner-Warner only in brass instead of aluminum. Frederick Buehner-Warner was a German-born metalsmith who emigrated to the U.S. in 1929. The trademarks Buenilum and Beaumonde were registered to Buehner-Warner in 1933. His companies wares sold very well in the 1930's through the 1950's. The company was eventually sold to Pfaltzgraff in 1969 and closed completely in 1973. The Buehner-Warner wares should have the stamp "BW" on the bottoms.
