Hammered copper and brass trimmed wine jug by WMF
Tonight Auld Curiosities is pleased to offer a copper and brass lidded jug by WMF, for your consideration. WMF or Wurttembergsche Metallwarenfabrik is a highly respected company with highly collectable products. It was founded in 1853 and still carries on today as a premium supplier of cutlery and kitchenware. This jug is intended for wine (suitably tinned on the inside) and would date from the early part of the art nouveau movement. The copper has a nice hammered texture and toward the bottom has 6 panels showing double floral motifs – possibly representing Wisteria. The finial and handle are brass and give nice contrast to the copper, while adding balance to this elegant design.
The jug stands 11” (280mm) tall to the top of the finial, on a base with a diameter of 4 7/8” (124mm). This is a pre-owned and used item but retaining excellent condition. Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We determine costs to each item as opposed to having regional postage charges to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair. PLEASE DO NOT BUY AN ITEM WITHOUT ESTABLISHING THE POSTAGE CHARGE TO BE ADDED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE.

Packaging and Postage
With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package. If satisfaction is still lacking then we will look to see whether our efforts have been inadequate for fair handling of an item and if it is found to be so we will refund the cost of the item. Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
