Silver Jardinieres- a Pair by WMF
This is a pair of silver-plated jardinieres of German origin by the company WMF. There has been some restoration done to them and what you see is newly restored silver-plating throughout. With its great, simple repeated stylized vine and flower motif, it has its elements of Art Nouveau design, but works well with Art Deco. Notice the nice faceted raised tapered lines which surround both pieces. These would be perfect to to use on a large dining buffet as ice buckets and they make spectacular plant holders. Imagine them with rich red poinsettias at Christmas time . So many possibilities and so nice to find something of this vintage in a pair.
