Art Nouveau EPERGNE Centerpiece Metalware Metal Work
Rare, unusual and massive Art Nouveau centerpiece / epergne. Possibly served as a calling card holder with two trays / dishes. Large piece measuring 19 1/2" tall x 19" across both trays. Featuring a winged nymph / fairy / angel / woman and winged child / cherub at the center. A tall ridged hollow trunk runs through the center candleholder? Also two ornate trays dishes with flowers in relief (secured by decorative metal knobs, see last two photos). Stunning piece believed to date to 1920s Germany or earlier.

In the style of German art nouveau metal makers WMF and Jugendstil Liberty, however, no marks found. Appears to be a metal alloy containing some percentage of silver, which is consistent with materials by German makers in early 20th century. Hard to capture actual "color" (looks like silver without the luster but not as dull as pewter). Heavy item weighing 11.6 lbs. Very stunning and desirable piece from an earlier time.
