WMF Wine Cooler*
Fabulous silver-plated wine cooler / ice bucket from WMF.
So Art Nouveau with its young water maiden, dragonflies, irises and sinuous leafy design details. This is truly a classic piece, showing excellent definition and still with its original plating which is in very good condition considering it is around a hundred and fifteen years old.
Described in the WMF book as a flower pot so the actual use is open to choice. The height is around 28 cm.
