NF - Alufran (AFNOR) / Poinçon de Qualité pour appareils ménagers

"NF - Alufran?" asked a famous italian collector lately.

(Look under the Chabeuil engraving)

NF is no secret to anyone who grew up in France, it is written on nearly every item manufactured in France: "Norme Fançaise" (French standard).

For household items, the AFNOR (French Association of Standards) created 5 hallmarks for different kinds of household devices: pressure, electric, gaz, coal or - for the kitchen and the butcher - made out of melted aluminium.

"Like the hallmark on Gold,
look on your household devices for NF!"

There is no silly question!!! so ask!
