Art Nouveau Water Pitcher from WMF*
Stunning and large German Jugendstil silver-plated water pitcher, or jug, made by WMF dating from circa 1900.
Beautifully proportioned and an extremely elegant design with flowing lines and the portrait of a long-haired maiden on each side, flanked by tulips, with their stems and leaves sweeping upwards in that typical whiplash manner so typical of Art Nouveau.
More tulips surround the flared foot and the base of the wide pourer.
The curved handle continues the Art Nouveau theme and the whole look is most impressive.
With a capacity of five litres, or very nearly nine pints, this is indeed a large jug and measures 47 cms. to the top of the handle.
Fully marked with the usual WMF marks on the underside.
