Silver Plated Casket from WMF
Stylish silver plated casket from WMF decorated in the Secessionist style.
Rectangular in shape and standing on top of a flared base with beaded detail, the box has a hinged lid which closes snugly over the front and sides.
The interior is lined with a hardwood that looks to be Brazilian Cedar so it may well have originally been used for storing cigars.
Marked on the underside as shown in the photos. According to information we’ve gleaned from the ASCAS wesite, this particular mark is one of the earliest and was used on certain items from 1880.
A little over 19 cm wide, 14 deep and around 11 cm high. The condition is very good with just a very small amount of minor wear to one or two parts of the silver plating.
