Hanau silver. Head and shoulders portrait bust of Napoleon modelled in trademark bicorne and dress uniform of a colonel of the Imperial Guard Foot Grenadiers, wearing the Legion of Honour. Maker’s mark of CR. Stamped 935S. Importer’s mark for Berthold Muller.

Berthold Muller & Son (fl.1865-1910s) was an import firm, listed in 1893 as a manufacturer's agent operating from 165 Wardour Street, London. They distributed Hanau silver from the workshop of Ludwig Neresheimer and Co. It appears that there were three generations of Berthold Mullers involved in the firm from the late nineteenth century into the early twentieth century, who were also plate metal workers or silversmiths. In 1915 Muller anglicised his name to Miller, and became B. Miller & Son in 1915, carrying on business as a wholesale silversmiths and jewellers, antique reproduction in silver, ivories, miniatures, enamels.
