Description: Another classic Meier design for Swid Powell. This masterpiece of modern design is presented on Meier’s own website. Marked Swid Powell, Made in Italy, Silverplate and with Meier’s initials somewhat faded. A heavy and well constructed peppermill. Although these were a regular production item for Swid Powell they are difficult to find in the marketplace. We have only seen a few others sold in the last five years. Meier’s designs for Swid Powell are in many major museum collections and have become highly collectable.
