WMF Fine Art Nouveau Lover's Centerpiece

Among the finest of Romanticized Jugendstil designs produced by the famous WMF (Wurttembergische Metalwaren Fabrik) workshop in Germany circa 1900. The Lover's Jardiniere created under the direction of Albert Mayer with a full figured embracing couple upon it's front has cast as well as applied elements. High Art Nouveau whiplash handles adorn each end of the large form. The original elaborately cut and etched crystal liner floats within the framework. A thoroughly remarkable example of impeccable Art Nouveau design. Original design drawing illustrated page 363 in this well known firm's 1906 catalogue as well as a photo on page xxxviii. Dimensions: 11" W, 6 1/2" H, 20 3/4" L.
