    I have only two pieces from a set that I know has five pieces. I have a photo of set by Orivit in this design made of sterling silver in 1907. But I am happy to have these two pieces that I bought in second hand store. So far I have not been able to trace the designer of this pattern.

    The design is German Jugendstil. In English we use the French term Art Nouveau. The handles have the familiar whiplash design and the typical branching roots feature on the body of both pieces.

    The company was founded in 1895 by Ferdinand Hobert Schmitz who had purchased a pre-existing bronze and metal work firm near Cologne, Germany.

    In 1898 the word Orivit was listed as a trademark referring to a new luxury pewter line and Orivit items won acclaim garnering a gold medal at the Paris World Exposition of 1900. In 1900 the name of Schmitz's firm was changed to Orivit. The firm employed the revolutionary Huber press which evidently allowed metal to be pressed into the desired form using a highly pressurized system.

    In 1905 the firm was taken over by WMF.
