This is a Magnificent MUSEUM GERMAN Art Nouveau Punch Bowl by the renowned silversmiths WMF of Germany, c. 1890; finely crafted in silver plated pewter with a green glass bowl insert.
The handled openwork frame follows the naturalistic Art Nouveau style with floral decoration of leaves and branches in raised relief supporting the green glass bowl. The punch bowl is in top condition with no loss to the superb and absolutely shiny silver-plating, however there is a crack hairline on the inside base not showing up to the outside; hallmarked with the WMF factory marks. Measures 44 cm high by 40 cm wide.
An absolute most for collectors! WMF is the abbreviation for Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik, which means Württemberg Metal Factory and was created in 1880 in the small town of Geislingen on the river Steige (Geislingen an der Steige), after the succesful merger of two smaller silver plate foundries.
