This delightful pewter jewellery box is decorated with the waved rims so typical of the Art Nouveau style, and adorned with rose blossoms and leaves. The lid has a knob styled as a flower bud. On the base is the hallmark WMF, G and it is also marked with a B, OX for WMF Geislingen, c1900. There is also at two other sites the mark 28K. The lid closes very securely and once opened reveals a padded surface inside the lid of silk surrounded by braid, which at one spot needs to be re-glued. The base is not lined. The condition is very good for age. This would make an appealing small box for display or for storage of small jewellery items.
Length 4.6 ins (11.7cm) x width 3 ins (7.6cm) x maximum height 4 ins (10.1cm). Weight 288 grams.
This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside & Out” on page 24.
Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $32.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
