Beautifult MID CENTURY french FRENCH PRESS PLUNGER coffee maker Melior
Paris 1950

MELIOR: High quality and elegance of the line Design

H 25 cm = 9.8"

Black Bakelite handle

in very good vintage condition

“There are many french coffee press coffee makers around and they all seem to be the same. Very wrong, they may look like it, but are not at all the same.
This machine has been designed and patented by faliero bondamini in 1958 and was produced from the beginning by the french saxophone maker martin s.a. in Paris. Later, they were also made by bodum and there are a lot of very bad copies.
One very easy sign to spot a bad one is the base of the frame. Bad quality makers have the two metal bands over lapping and are spot welded. They are usually made from thin flat steel. The melior makers are made from thick brass and are butt joint on the bottom and silver soldered.
The handles and knobs on the melior are made from a black bakelite. The copies have polyurethane handles. “
