c1900 Art Nouveau Silverplate Figurative Centrepiece


A very graceful Art Nouveau Silverplate figurative centrepiece, with an opalescent glass bowl.

The French piece was created c1900 and is not marked apart from the glass which has moulded in relief MADE IN FRANCE. The centrepiece features a beautiful woman framed with an organic portico that supports the opalescent shallow glass bowl. The base appears to be made of very organic flowing leaves. On the inside of the base the space has been partially filled with plaster to weigh the base. The centrepiece is reminiscent of the work of the German company, W├╝rttembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). Condition is superb, with hardly any wear at all.
