    Two months ago now I bought this WMF centrepiece at the Collector's Fair here in Sydney. Not cheap but it definitely was an object of desire many years in the making.

    The liner is probably original and in perfect order. When I have come across WMF centrepieces in the past the glass insert was either missing or damaged. The seller had kept this piece for many years and it remained intact. It just needed a good clean.

    The WMF marks are on one of the feet. B for Brittania metal, I/O for normal thickness of gilding or silver-plating & OX for oxidised.

    I love the Jugendstil whiplash treatment in the lily of the valley design. I've been keeping it for the 600th post here on CW.

      It is fantastic Kevin, and so worthy of your 600th! Congratulations, and thanks for showing us so much class stuff and educating us along the way.

      This WMF piece is so magnificent. I love the lily of the valley flowers and the strap leaves, the handles , the feet AND the insert. Special.

      Many thanks IVONNE, PETEY & KIVATINITZ !!!!!!

      It has a greenish tinge to the gold .... I suppose it is like an amber.
      I've seen clear and blue .... It is an unusual colour.

      Beautiful piece,thanks for explaining the alphabet and numbers,could you perhaps tell me what the ostrich represents,as I have a piece with all the above and an ostrich mark.thanks in advance.
    26. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Many thanks RIAZ. From what I've seen the ostrich or der Strauß in German refers to Daniel Straub ... one of the founders of the business. "WMF was originally called Metallwarenfabrik Straub & Schweizer and was opened as a metal repairing workshop."
