Unusual antique liqueur set in Art Nouveau style. WMF glass, tray - metal, silver plating. Germany, late 19th-early 20th century


WMF is an abbreviation for Wurttembergische metallwarenfabrik, a metal factory near Stuttgart specializing in the creation of silver-plated decorative metal products. The factory began production of its own glass in 1883. Hugo Debach became the manager of the factory in 1904, during the First World War the factory of the model of 1883 was destroyed, and in 1922 a new building was built. The production of glass items specifically for the silver metal mold continued, while at the same time the company recruited innovators, designers to develop the enterprise and introduce new techniques for creating amazing objects. Karl Widman designed MYRA-Kristal with an iridescent surface. Simultaneously, in 1926, the IKORA-Kristal was released, with colored inserts and bubble patterns. Both versions of glass were a huge success, and the production continued for another 10 years, until the production of art glass practically ceased in Germany before the war. Ikora-crystal products were produced for another 5 years after the Second World War in small editions. The company created reproductions of objects from past eras. At this time, Wilhelm Wagenfeld was the main developer, designer at WMF, and his ideas were in demand and popularity for many years. Unfortunately, in 1982, WMF ceased to exist.
