I have been collecting figural antiques for many years. When I discovered this treasure, I considered it to be so special that I kept it as part of my personal private collection. It’s time for someone else to cherish it as much as I have
This unique, antique treasure is impeccably rendered and full of intricate detail
It was made in Germany around the end of the 19th century
Sculpted in high relief, a young girl is feeding her 2 adorable cats
The artistry and detail are very intricate - note the cats’ whiskers and fur, the young girl’s toe nails and the expression on her face, the lovely flowers that hang along the edge
In very good antique condition for age and type, with light wear commensurate with use.
Measures 9.5 inches (24.1 cm) X 6 inches (15.2 cm)
WMF hallmark on the back; WMF is the abbreviation for Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik, which means Württemberg Metal Factory. It was created in 1880 in the small town of Geislingen on the river Steige (Geislingen an der Steige), after the successful merger of two smaller silver plate foundries.
