Wmf Genuine Art Nouveau Claret Jug Mount Silver Plated. Mermaid Figurine. Lovely:
This beautiful piece is the silver plated mount from a WMF claret jug. It dates to 1906 and is marked 'W.M.F.R I/0 a.s'. The composition is a layer of silver over a base metal body. The design is absolutely beautiful, with the sensual mermaid forming the handle and the spout decorated with Laurel leaves and berries. I have seen this mermaid figure detached from the spout and sold separately as a figurine; it looks great but I think that this is worth restoration. The damage is obvious, the glass jug is missing! In addition there are areas of silver loss and some denting to the spout. I have tried to photograph it comprehensively but if you have further questions please do ask. This is a very beautiful piece and will make a lovely addition to a collection or a fantastic project for restoration. I shall answer any questions as quickly as possible. Thanks for looking.
