MORE PHOTOS BELOW - Click to Enlarge
A stunning Art Nouveau cigar or jewellery box by WMF, made of hand hammered & embossed brass, anddating to between c.1909 and 1914.
The rectangular box has an overhanging hinged lid, a wood lined base,and sits on four circular stepped feet.
The box has been made from a very golden coloured brass metal and has been finely & subtlyhand planished all over and then embossed with adistinctiveArt Nouveaudesign of whiplash forms, undulating lines and decreasing roundels, to the front, top, and rear- please see all photos & click to enlarge.
The edge of the base carries the fully shaded beehive ostrich WMF / G mark (used from c.1909 until c.1914) and the number '112'. I haven't seen another WMF box like this & there is nothing really similar in the 1906 catalogue.
Please note that this is a heavier gauge of box than the usual silver plated brass WMF boxes of the period.
Condition is good with nodamage orrestoration. Therear corners of the overhanginglid are very slightly pushed andwhat appears to be white marks in the photos are simply areas where the box has been handled recently & the patina has rubbed (only really noticeable under studio lighting and will soon return).
The box measures approx 7 1/2" x 3 7/8" at the lid (19cm x 10cm) and stands approx 2 1/2" / 6.3cm tall.
