Product Description

An attractive oval tray dish in pewter, decorated in an Art Nouveau/Jugenstil style, with a gaggle of ducks.

Engraved in the middle is: EHRENPREIS GEWIDMET VOM 1. NORDTIROLER GEFLUGELZUCHT VEREIN INNSBRUCK – AUSSTELLUNG ROSENHEIM 9. – 12. NOVEMBER 1905. The tray was made by the German company Kayser and the underside is stamped Kayserzinn, with the number 4545. This number is a reference of the design model. It dates the tray to around 1905. The dish or tray was presented as an Honour Prize, by the North Tyrol Poultry Breeder Association, in Innsbruck, at the Rosenheim Exhibition, on the 9th-12th November 1905. The condition is very good.

In 1862 the Dusseldorf based Kayser family, already in the tin industry, opened a new foundry in the Bockum district of Krefeld. The Krefeld foundry run by Jean Kayser was devoted to mass production, whereby the designs originated from the Cologne studio of Englebert Kayser. At the world exhibitions in Paris (1900), Turin (1902), Dusseldorf and St.Louis (1904), the company enjoyed great success with its "Kayserzinn" or "Kayser pewter", a special lead-free alloy of tin and silver distinguished by its lasting gleam - success which it owed to its outstanding designers: Karl Geyer (1858-1912), Hermann Fauser(1874-1947), Karl Berghof(1881-1967) and others, but their main designer and artistic director was Hugo LEVEN (1874-1956), a name to be compared with that of Liberty's main pewter designer, Archibald KNOX. The decors they designed were inspired by both floral French Art Nouveau and by linear Jugendstil.

Kayserzinn objects in pewter are numbered from the (fictitious) number "4000" onwards and marked with the word "Kayserzinn". All objects were marked this way, either in a circular or oval frame, or horizontally. The model number "4000" was introduced in 1894-5 and the last, number "4999" was produced in 1925.
