A very attractive early vintage WMF, Geislingen, brass hammered bowl on three legs, 1940c. One finds the famous maker's mark on the base of one leg - it is now, understandably, somewhat rubbed.
WMF is the abbreviation for Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik, which means Württemberg Metal Factory and was created in 1880 in the small German town of Geislingen on the river Steige (Geislingen an der Steige), after the successful merger of two smaller silver plate foundries. This company is still active today.
Size : top's diameter : 25.5 cm. ( 10 3 /64" )
height: 9 cm. ( 3 35/64" ).
Weight : 706 g. ( 1 Pound 9 Ounces ).
Condition : very good - some more polishing perhaps !
