Antique 1900s WMF Albert Kohler & Cie Decanter
Antique Art nouveau Austrian WMF claret jug. Manufactured from pewter and green bohemian glass this vintage wine decanter was made by AK & Cie as around 1900. Albert Kohler (AK & Cie) were a famous Austrian metalwork company that produced and distributed on the Austro Hungarian market for WMF between 1900 and 1914. Popularly known as a Jugendstil style this typical Vienna Secessionist lidded claret jug is adorned with swirling floral decoration which are actually braids of hair originating from the female figures head. The actual lady on either side of the sprawling green glass vessel is very much in the Alphonse Mucha style.
Marked on pewter underside: AK & Cie
This would make a great addition to your art nouveau home decor or a fabulous gift for a collector of fine WMF antiques.
Decanter measures 7" wide by 7" deep 15.5" tall and weighs 3lb 8oz.
In generally good condition considering age and use. There have been 2 repairs to this piece in the past which have been very nicely done. One is at the very top of the handle where you can see a small brass attachment and the other is at the very bottom of the handle near the base which attaches the base to the handle (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
