WMF German Secession Fine Copper Lidded Box Hinged Pot Art Nouveau Art Deco Decorated Jugendstil Copper Lidded Box WMF Marked

Ostrich on the base.

Beautiful lidded box that has the most beautiful patina and is in fair vintage condition.

The design has been inspired by both floral German Art Nouveau, German Jugenstil and by linear Art Deco.

Founded in 1880 by the merger of two existing German companies, the WARTTEMBERGISCHE METALWARENFABRIK or WMF was, around 1900, the world's largest producer and exporter of household metalware, mainly in the JUGENDSTIL and Secessionist style.

The company's trademark was an Ostrich.

It was the secessionists aim, through its use of the methods of mass production, to make artistically designed, contemporary Jugenstil objects of daily use (such as candlesticks, ashtrays, lamps, beakers, vases, planters, jardinieres. tea and coffee sets) accessible to a broad selection of the public.

This was made in the first half of the 20th century as a decorative item and is lightly polished. There are some signs of use and wear and a dent in the base and a mark across the inside.

This box has seen some life. It is slightly out of shape, the interior has signs of use and wear and is marked. There are some dents in the base, it sits flat. It quite a substantial piece but is not heavy. There is some cleaner residue. We have left it in the condition we found it.

This is an important piece of WMF manufacture in the early 20th century.

It measures 8.3 cm or 3 1/4 inches wide, 7.5cm or 3 inches high and 11.5cm or 4 1/2 inches long.
