Polished Pewter Card Tray
Delightful polished pewter ‘Lady and Bird’ visiting card tray from WMF dating from around 1905.
The wide heart shaped tray shows a design of sprigs of mistletoe with the lady standing behind, wearing a long, diaphanous gown which sweeps away from her at the base, into the stylised tray perimeter. She is a typical Nouveau maiden with flowers woven into her ornate hair.
Standing barefoot and looking over one shoulder, in her left hand she holds a bowl and in her right a small bird is perched on the stick she’s holding.
Still showing good definition which so many of these old pewter pieces have lost over the years due to over zealous cleaning.
The width of the tray is 27 cm and the total height a touch under 20cm.
