WMF Silver Plated Maiden Card Tray
Delightful Art Nouveau silver-plated visiting card tray from WMF.
An approximately circular design with a Nouveau maiden holding up one side of her long, flowing, off-the-shoulder dress which spreads at her feet to form the lower part of the rim.
Her quite amazing hair is almost as long as her dress, and sweeps away at each side of her.
She’s looking to the left of the tray, towards an iris, its stems and leaves sweeping up and around in typically sinuous style, culminating in a pair of fully open flowers.
In good condition with excellent definition to her hair and dress, and also the flowers.
Circa 1905, the width is approximately 31 cm at the widest point, and the depth around 28 cm.
