I understand...you may wish to check the casting using a sharp piece of steel (a sewing machine needle usually works)--on the bottom, in an obscure place, try to scratch the finish...if it comes back very silvery and shiny, it is spelter from the 1930-50's era; if it comes back a more dull golden color, it is pre-1930 as a general rule. During WWII, the original Moreau French molds were hidden in order to keep them from the Germans...many were recovered after the War and ended up with an art dealer in NY who began casting forms from both brothers...most were LF Moreau pieces, but several were from A. Moreau....I have attached a link to one of the LF forms which were copied; note the patination on the original art deco pieces...Best, Will
And here is an A. Moreau original for your review...
Could you please tell me about these three tins? The
