WMF Modell for Deco Forks

Postby Traintime » Thu May 16, 2019 5:13 pm

Yes, Art Deco is an abused term...but these panels seem to fit like artistic window frames. And a go-go monogram that could have suited a Swing Band. Standard 90 process with 30 grams per dozen. Do we have a pattern number available?

Hello, pattern 2000, no name to the pattern, first listed in the internal "WMF Mitteilungen" in March 1930 (!) as new, which strikes me as odd, I would have dated this to the middle of the 1920ies. Maybe it took years from first idea to actual production. Regards, Bahner

Many thanks, Bahner! Was thereafter able to find a citation in a listing indicating the original "Metallkunst" (Brohan-Museum Berlin Katalog 1990) as S.574-575. [I see in older threads that Metallkunst der Moderne/Modern Art of Metalwork (2001) dropped the flatware listings, to be issued separately later.] From what I could find of the production, Dinner Knives/Forks, Breakfast Knives/Forks, Larger spoon (Menuloffel), Smaller spoon (listed both as Kaffeeloffel and Teeloffel at about 13.5cm+), Dessert/Cake Fork (Kuchengabel), Two sizes/types of Ladel (Kelle/Sossenkelle), and a elongated two-tined skewering serving fork (Vorlegegabel). Nothing else came up. Would the set have been more extensive?

Hello, have also seen fish eaters and a sugar tongue/tong so I believe this to be a full line pattern. Regards, Bahner
