WMF - Vase (2) - Art Deco - silvered path
Switzerland - Early 19th century

Art Nouveau, ‘WMF’ silvered pewter vase, German, circa 1900.

A beautiful silvered pewter, twin handled vase by the German manufacturer WMF. This company pushed the curvilinear style of Art-Nouveau metalwork to its limits, producing lovely flowing designs. This vase exemplifies this style, decorated in relief with tendril like stems to the flowers. The vase has a splayed quatrefoil base. The piece is fully stamped under one foot with an impressed set of marks.
