WMF (WÜRTTEMBERGISCHE METALWARENFABRIK)was founded in 1880 in Germany and by 1900 was the world's largest producer and exporter of household metalware, mainly in the Art Nouveau (in German, Jugendstil) style. The company's trademark is an Ostrich. Then and now, WMF is widely known by its initials. The designs used in its metalworks were created in its own studio, directed from 1894 by sculptor and designer Albert Mayer, who depicted beautiful and graceful maidens with flowing hair and the very organic designs, as seen decorating this basket. The basket is silver plated with only small loss to the center of the bottom of the bowl. It is 6" wide and 6" tall with the handle upright, so perfect for small fruit or bonbons. WMF lost its export market because of WWI in 1914, and its wares from that time are now highly sought and collected.
