German-made fish platter by Orivit between 1896 and about 1905, a short time during which this silverplate manufacturer employed some of the top designers in the world. Business reversals catalyzed by the building of new plant forced a sale to WMF. Many of the top designers at Orivit joined WMF. This spectacular art nouveau era serving piece, has the naturalistic form, shape and decoration of the art nouveau movement. Design elements included in the decoration are a large fish with pointed snout on the left (possibly sturgeon), netting, smaller fish, crab, and lily leaves.The platter is double handled and the handles are applied from the back, approx. 24" long and 10.75" wide, and is in good estate condition with some utensil marks on the surface of the platter. I have tried to show these in the picture but let me know if you need more. Base sits on a raised foot rim. Marked Orivit 2110 Germany. Orivit used an alloy similar to pewter that did not tarnish as readily as silverplate. While this platter is not presently buffed to a bright finish, it hasn't been cleaned in years and would probably benefit from professional cleaning and polishing.
