19th C Judaica Silver Plated Server WMF Warsaw Galw II

What a lovely item this is; it may very well have been a family's official etrog server. The JAM STAND rests on four ornate feet holding the circular hollow plinth which then attaches to the bowl rest surrounded by deep repousse designs; a bamboo motif handle completes the ensemble. A special jam spoon would have hung from the center handle, and a covered bowl would have rested in the stand. We include the bowl which came to us with this piece, but doubt sincerely that it is the original bowl. In any case, it is likely missing a lid, and has small nips around the rim.

The number "14" is impressed on the outside ring, along with a triangle impression of the c. 1900 mark of "WMF, GALW, WARSZAW, II." WMF is for the well-known German company, Wurttembergische Metallwaren Fabrik, who purchased the Polish metalware company of Warsaw, which soon became a subsidiary of WMF.

It has wear from use and age ... including loss of the silver plating over most of the outside -- some can still be seen in the recesses of the repousse, in the grooves, and of course, on the inside. Additionally, the is a very slight bend to the lower rim at one of the feet (correctible), there's an occasional small ding, plus scattered verdigris and general oxidation to the metal.

Overall height is about 8", 4-1/2" rim diameter, 6" diameter at the feet. $16 US Shipping.
