Keith Murray for Mappin & Webb Art Deco silver plated tazza with geometric pattern

This beautiful Art Deco silver plated tazza was designed by Keith Murray for Mappin & Webb & would grace any table today.
The 3 tiered foot leads to the slightly concave top that has a border of incised geometric patterns.
The base is signed "Triple Deposit" with the triskelion emblem beneath, " Mappin & Webb's Prince's Plate London & Sheffield", the letter "N" in a shield shaped cartouche & "W28463 R253".

Keith Murray's understated designs, so cutting edge in the 1930s-40s remain relevant today.

Approximate dimensions:
Weight: 1lb 0.20zs - 460gms
Height: 2.91ins - 7.4cms
Diameter: 9.29ins - 23.6cms

Keith Day Pearce Murray was born in New Zealand but came to England when he was 14.
He qualified as an architect but turned his hand to illustrating before becoming a full time designer.
He worked on a freelance basis for the glass makers Steven & Williams and then for Wedgwood pottery and his designs in metal were created for Mappin & Webb.
In 1936 he was appointed architect in charge of designing Wedgwood's new factory in Burlaston.
After the war he returned to architecture.

Good but:
one pinprick indentation in the bowl;
small dent on the rim &
scratching commensurate with age & wear
