Presenting a excellent piece of Art Nouveau influenced design.
The funnel form vase bears the Papaver poppy design, which was popular during the height of the Art Nouveau movement. There are two open poppies wrapping round the body of the vase, a bud and a smaller half open poppy with unfurling leaves complimenting the blooms. The decor has been crafted in raised relief, making this piece very tactile.
A elegant piece suited to a room with Art Nouveau, Vintage / Brocante inspired decor.
A BIT OF HISTORY
Engelbert Kayser (1840-1911) - an art dealer, entrepreneur, and ambitious artist - founded the trademark of the same name in 1894. Kayserzinn produced high-quality tin and pewter items in Jugendstil Art Nouveau style until 1920.
Kayserzinn's main designer and artistic director was Hugo Leven (1874-1956), a name to be compared with that of Liberty's main pewter designer, Archibald Knox. Leven was very successful as a designer, participating in world exhibitions and strongly influencing the German Jugendstil style with his designs.
Very good. No damage, however, there is age-wear - wear which is commensurable with the age of the piece, please see photos as part of condition report.
