- Pattern: 7424, Gold Floral (Discontinued)
- Made in: Japan
- Vintage: 1960’s
- Details: A gorgeous silent butler made of fine porcelain china by Sadek. It has gorgeous gold and rust florals on the lid, and on the lower half, plus gold scrolls around the border. The handle is also gilded and has a very pretty gold tone metal shell piece around the hinged lid. These became very popular in the 60’s, not only for collecting crumbs at the table but with the allure of smoking during that era, they were primarily used to collect ashes and keep ashtrays clean. This one is stamped in the back: 7424, most likely the pattern number. This piece retains its original foil label that reads: “Andrea by Sadek, Made in Japan.” Some of these silent butlers stay open on their own, this one does not. A beautiful addition to your well appointed dinner table, bar or game room, perfect colors for your Thanksgiving table, even if you don’t use it, it’s an added accent piece and touch of class and sentimentality.

Andrea by Sadek was founded in 1936 by Charles and Norman Sadek and it is still family owned. It is also known as Charles Sadek Import Company and they are headquartered in New Rochelle, New York. Charles named the company Andrea in honor of his daughter, who is still involved in the design of their products. After WWII Norman Sadek started trade with Japan an inspired Japanese factories to produce higher quality products. You can still find, if rarely, Andrea by Sadek products in the market with the stamp “Occupied Japan”. Sadek is a leader in the gift and tableware industry, they have beautiful porcelain products such as: flowers, birds and other figurines, as well as salt and pepper shakers, tea sets and tea accessories, lamps, dinnerware and much more. Sadly in November, 2010, Norman Sadek passed away. Today his son Jim, along with his wife, and Norman’s daughters Andrea and Lauren, all run the company.
