This is a most stylish, neat WMF classic art nouveau planter with bold enamel detailed panels of peacocks interspersed with rosettes. The planished brass jardiniere has a lovely patina and attractive beaten design to the body. The piece was manufactured by the WMF company in Germany and is stamped with their manufacturers mark to the base. WMF was originally called Metallwarenfabrik Straub & Schweitzer and was opened as a small metal repairing workshop. Through mergers and acquisitions, by 1900 they were the worlds largest producer and exporter of household metalware, mainly Jugendstil, or Art Nouveau style, designed in the WMF art studio under Albert Meyer, sculptor and designer who was director from 1884 to 1914. This is in nice original condition save for a loss to one of the enamel panels shown in photo 5. The jardiniere measures 19 cms in diameter and is 18 cms high. UK insured delivery is £10
