It was designed in 1927 and patented. It was then produced by Buquet himself until the end of the 30's. Examples were displayed in the 1929 Salon d’Automne.
It is made of nickel plated brass, the base is made of ebonized wood (relacquered). It is signed under the base with the typical Buquet metal plate marked: "BUQUET Bte? SGDG Paris". This is an original piece (circa 1927-30).
