A Time Remembered

Circa: 1940
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Everlast Metal Products Corporation of New York City
This vintage hammered aluminum coaster with serrated edges in a fruit and flower pattern is marked: Hand Forged / Everlast Metal, Hallmark #9F in my Collectible Aluminum Identification and Value Guide by Everett Grist.
Aluminum giftware for the home became fashionable during the 1930s, at a time when most Americans could not afford luxury metals like silver. One of the most prolific manufacturers of aluminum giftware was Everlast Metal Products Corporation of New York City.
As the Great Depression gripped the country during the 1930s, the demand for consumer products fell as many people struggled just to get by in the faltering economy. With few buyers for silver products, Schnitzer and Gelfman decided to try working with the more affordable and modern metal, aluminum. In 1932, the men formed Everlast Metal Products Corporation and began producing high quality hand-forged aluminum giftware.
In good condition it does have some minor wear and scratches from age which I have shown in my pictures and it measures 3 3/8 inches in diameter.
I have 2 of these coasters in stock. Price quoted is for each coaster ordered.
An addition to any Vintage Aluminum Collection.
SH & Ins. will be quoted after orders placed. If you have questions please contact me and thank you for looking.
