WMF Silver Plated Wine Jug
Impressive and large sized silver plated wine jug from WMF dating from around 1900.
A strong design combining both Art Nouveau and Secessionist influences, the jug tapers gently upwards from a raised circular foot showing an openwork design of long, sinuous strappy leaves.
A series of plain upright panels then circles the jug below a pair of circular floral garlands, one on each side.
The top section displays a row of stylised leaves and berries on long stems and finally a stuudded detail all round, just below the rim.
The main handle and that on the hinged lid both have a distinctly Secessionist slant and complete what is a beautifully balanced look.
We have seen this jug before in copper, but this is the first example we’ve come across that’s silver plated.
In lovely condition, commensurate with its age, with just a little amount of expected wear to the plate on one or two of the highest points, as can be seen from our photos.
Standing 40 cm high and comfortably holding 1.5 litres or a couple of bottles of wine.
