Fairy Card Tray from WMF

Item Description

Made by WMF around 1905 and sold as a visiting card tray, this is a truly delightful piece of Art Nouveau design. 

The floor of the tray itself is simply the surface of a small pool being fed by a fountain from the mouth of Neptune.  On the other side is the figure of a fairy, seated by the side of the pool and scooping water into the shell she’s holding.

Elevated slightly on four splayed feet which, in typical Art Nouveau style, sweep into the sides of the tray which incorporates leaves and berries into the design.

Silver plated, fully marked beneath one of the feet and in excellent condition with great definition to all the detail.

The overall width is around 31 cm, the depth is a maximum of 24 cm and the height approximately 12 cm.

Lit:  Art Nouveau Domestic Metalwork from WMF, p. 167

Ref: 13248
