WMF Art Nouveau silver box w lid
This beautiful Art Nouveau Box or “casket” as it is more formally called is a great example of the work done between 1900 and the early 1920s at the Wurttemberg Metallwarenfabrik in Germany.
Lush with Jugendstil details such as the “repousse” silver relief work, the plush burgundy velvet lining and the graceful arched handle at the top, it is a treasure in it’s own right and ready to house treasures of your own. Fill it with jewelry or gloves, candy, souvenirs, cigars, photos or anything that is precious to you.
