A stunning example of WMF (Wurttembergische Metallwarenfabrik) Art Nouveau at its finest. The large reticulated centerpiece depicts swans floating across rippling waters among lily pads. High Art Nouveau whiplash handles rise at each end of the oval form. A cobalt crystal liner rests within the framework. Four naturalistic floral inspired supports uphold the elegant form. Made in Germany circa 1907. Impressed workshop marks beneath. Dimensions: 17 1/2" L, 8 1/4" W, 6" H.
