{Antique French 19th Century 950/1000 Silver & Crystal Muffineer, Sugar Shaker, Caster Sifter}

French Antiques are often of a unique beauty. So is this 19th Century 950/1000 Silver & Crystal Muffineer, Sugar Shaker, Caster Sifter. Use it for sifting powdered sugar over your pancakes, waffles or other desserts. Also great for using as Cinnamon Shaker!
Voilà!
A very rare beauty and in PERFECT CONDITION!
Only ONE availabe for sale at my Zen Cart powered boutique on line Mariette's Back to Basics: Antique French 19th Century 950/1000 Silver & Crystal Muffineer.
This Muffineer is quite tall with its full 13 cm or 5.1 inch in height.
The rich antique patina on the solid pure silver I leave for the new owner to be removed.
PERFECT CONDITION; no dents, no chips or whatsoever!
A unique piece and it will look great on your Dessert, Brunch or Tea Buffet.
Again I have used it with our large Gardenia flowers and the beautiful hand crocheted lace table topper done by Susan from Ava Grace's Closet's Mama.
Showing you where the French Goddess Minerva head is being punched.
It is sideways...
Next photo you will see it better...
A perfect French Minerva is visible here.
French Minerva means it is 1st standard silver, showing the Goddess Minerva with a number 1 (which I have circled red) beside her forehead.
This number 1 denotes a silver content of 950/1000 or almost PURE silver and higher than the usual 925 sterling silver content!

Muffineer used for this romantic dessert with Strawberry Rose Petal Cream...
Do you use powdered sugar often?

  1. The muffineer is beautiful! 13cm, that's taller than I thought. It should stand out on any table! I usually don't use powdered sugar. I eat my pancakes and waffles only with butter. Maybe I will try next time though :-) The dessert with strawberry rose petal cream looks yummy and beautiful. And sure looks very romantic!

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Only Pieter uses the powdered sugar on his pancakes and waffles and I use a bit of pure maple syrup as that is better for the body than regular refined sugar, being diabetes type II.
      But there are many uses, also for cinnamon, a very healthy spice that balances the blood sugar level and it can also be a blend of powdered sugar with cinnamon...
      Those baked shells (easy enough as I used simple won-ton sheets!) filled with whipped cream, strawberries and fresh pesticide free rose petals IS very romantic indeed. And easy to make!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      Tomorrow the sun will be back after a day of heavy rain so the weekend looks promising again. It will be 24°C again and that goes perfectly along with changing our clock back one hour...
      Hugs to you and enjoy Singapore!

      Glad that you did visit Ava Grace's Closet, Susan's blog a few times. Her little three year old girl is as cute as can be!
      The use of our our private muffineer is frequent for pancakes, waffles and other dessert that can be dusted with powdered sugar.
      The strawberry and rose petal cream is so yummy and romantic!
      Glad you had nice hot summer weather, even if that's a little hot for you it beats rain!

      Our private silver muffineer is a true beauty but so is this French silver and crystal antique one.
      As long as one has such huge Gardenia, table decoration is easy but there are no more... Only twice a year if you are lucky!
      Enjoy your November too.
      Hugs,

  10. Liebe Mariette,
    wundervolle Teile zeigst du wieder - deine Löffel-Sammlung ist traumhaft schön - Wahnsinn -
    Puderzucker hab ich gestern bei der Herstellung von Pralinen verwendet - und für Marzipankartoffeln -

    ich finde es so schön, wie stolz du auf deinen lieben Mann bist - Recht hast du -

    unser Balkon ist nicht sehr groß aber für meinen Mann und mich reicht es, um gemütlich zu sitzen und auf den Garten hinab zu sehen -

    herzliche Grüße und einen schönen Abend -

    1. Liebe Ruth,
      Danke für deine lieben Zeilen hier oben! Ja, Puderzucker verwendet man öfters und mit so einem Löffel oder Zuckerstreuer wird etwas einfaches eine ware Art.
      Ja natürlich bin ich schon Jahrzehnten sehr stolz auf meinen lieben Mann; er verdient es auch mit Recht!
      So einem Balkon macht dan grosser Freude wenn man zusammen gemütlich über den Garten hinab schauen kann. Auch bequem um Getränke oder Kaffee/Tee ganz nah zu haben. Es lohnt sich und mit eben mehr Grund schaut man schon aus nach dem Frühling!
      Herzlicher Gruss zurück und ein schöner Sonntag noch.

  11. Hi Mariette, This is beautiful and a gorgeous treasure. I do not eat powder sugar on anything but I do use it when making some special icings. I am gluten intolerant now so I have to be very careful and only eat gluten free baked goods if at all and bake with rice flour in pancakes, waffles etc.
    I would shake cinnamon however. Beautiful pics.
    Have a special Sunday.
    Hugs

      This antique French muffineer indeed is gorgeous.
      Like you, I don't use powdered sugar or any sugar. It is quite a challenge for adapting our way of baking and cooking as we age!
      Cinnamon is such a healthy spice and that comes always in handy. Thanks for your compliment about the photos. The last blossoms I'm afraid for 2013...
      Happy Sunday to you and lots of hugs.

  13. Dearest Mariette, this is a lovely muffineer as is the one from your personal collection. I love using powered sugar for taste and decoration. I often use a piece of lace or a paper doily to create a design.
    I do hope that you and Pieter are doing well. As usual, I am behind on my email. Please take care, dear friend.
    Love to you,

    2. 'Liebste' Anna,
      That is the advantage if you speak more than just one language; don't worry I understand it no matter what!
      Oh, at times I wish we could drift back in time to see how life would be like than. Certain things not better and others far better. The attention to detail seems to get lost often in our time... With few ingredients like a beautiful rose or gardenia and a piece of lace with some silver we can create a still live and give happiness. It is a welcome gift indeed!
      Thanks for your compliments and meaningful comments all the time.
      Enjoy your Sunday and have a great new week.

      Thank you, and indeed those Gardenias smell like perfume...
      For the very same reason I don't eat refined sugar, maple syrup is broken down different by the body and does not affect the blood sugar level in the same way. Just trying to refrain from sugar due to diabetes type II.

  20. Liebe Mariette,
    ich bin hin und weg von diesen einzigartigen Schönheiten, der antike Zuckerstreuer ist traumhaft und er steht auf einer wunderschönen Häkeldecke -oder ist das eine andere Technik, bin mir nicht ganz sicher...
    Deine private Sammlung dieser filigranen Zuckerlöffel mit dem Zuckerstreuer ist sehr edel, eine Tasse Tee mit einer Waffel passt sehr gut dazu...
    Bei dem letzten Foto läuft mir zu so später Stunde (bei uns ist gleich Mitternacht) das Wasser im Munde zusammen und ich träume bestimmt von diesen Leckereien...
    und glaub, ich muss weniger Zucker essen...

    Dir ein herzliches Dankeschön für Deine lieben Glückwünsche zu unserem 17. Hochzeitstag, wir freuen uns sehr darüber und wünschen einen guten Wochenanfang.
