WMF Art Nouveau Pitcher
Magnificent and large Art Nouveau silver-plated jug from WMF.
With the face of a long haired femme fleur in profile on each side, flanked by sinuous stems and flower buds, and decorated with Art Nouveau floral motifs around the base.
The sweeping, high arched handle incorporates typical whiplash design details, and further flowers, leaves and stems follow the edge of the rim before it smoothly morphs into a high and wide pourer.
With a capacity of around five litres, or over eight-and-a-half pints, this is indeed a large jug which could be used for water, fruit squash, beer or cider as preferred.
The jug is in very good condition, commensurate with its age, and shows fine detail to all the decortive areas.
Dating from circa 1900 and with a total height to the top of the handle of approximately 47 cm.
