Silver Tea and Coffee Set WMF Art Nouveau Jugendstil Five-Piece

About the Item

This silver plate five piece coffee and tea set is a spectacular example of “Jugendstil” design. Richly decorated with embossed patterns that combine the lyrical curves of Art Nouveau but at the same time hinting of the clean , geometric lines that would become the hallmark of “Art Deco”. From the finials that crown each of the pieces – coffee and tea pots, creamer and sugar bowl to the way the base of each piece has a gentle slope, it illustrates just how the artists who embraced the “youth style” (Jugendstil) were dedicated to finding ways to balance ornamentalism with functionalism in their creations. The tray is exceptional – with its beautiful handles, and all pieces are in excellent condition both inside and out. The set bears the marks of the WMF silver company, the intials of the famous German foundry ” Wurttembergische Metallwarenfabrik”, most often simply called WMF. It was founded in the 1853 as a partnership between Daniel Straub and Josef and Friedrich Schweizer, and in 1892 developed a special technique for silver plating in which the silver coating is of double thickness in any parts that will be exposed to greater wear and tear. This patented process is called “Perfect Hard Silver Plating”. Measurements Tray 25? x 14? Coffee Pot 10? x 8? Teapot 8.5? x 8? Sugar 6? x 5.5? Creamer 6? x 4.5?.

  • Meissen Porcelain Dinner Service, 189 Pieces
    By Meissen Porcelain
    Located in New Orleans, LA
    Comprising an incredible 189 pieces, this impressive Meissen porcelain dinner service is an exceptional example of the firm's prized dinnerware. The bodies are crafted in the New Brandenstein relief pattern designed by Johann Friedrich Eberlein in 1744, which gives this service a distinct Rococo feel. The hand-painted enamel detailing is known as the Flowers and Insects motif and is executed with stunning vibrancy and intricacy. Since each piece is executed entirely by hand, no two pieces bear the exact same adornments.

    Similar, single dining pieces are featured in Meissen Domestic Porcelain by Günther Sterba, 1991, figures 83 through 86.

    The pieces bear the Meissen blue crossed swords that date this service between 1850/60-1924.
