Art Deco Kensington Ware aluminum and brass ''Compass Platter'' designed by Lurelle Guild, 1935-36.

In the fall of 1934 ALCOA (The Aluminum Company of America) introduced a line of household goods called “Kensington Ware” made from a “new aluminum alloy that produces a whiter color than pure aluminum”. Famed industrial designer Lurelle Guild (1898 – 1986) was retained to design the majority of the line. Guild designed this American art deco cocktail shaker in 1935.
