ORIVIT Pewter – Art Nouveau Basket

ORIVIT Pewter – Art Nouveau Silver Plated Basket – stock #8118

A super looking original art nouveau Britannia Metal Bonbon basket with an art nouveau design and made by the German firm, Orivit c1905. It has a bowl with wavy rim decorated with moulded designs of flowers with swirrling tendrils into the well of the bowl. There is a sinuous whiplash handle.

This example has most of it’s original silver plate with some wear and tarnish pewter in the well of the bowl. Stamped marks on the underside. I expect that this will appeal to collectors of art nouveau, jugendstil and seccessionist design.
