Kayser brand copper vase decorated in the Jugendstil style

Kayser brand copper vase decorated in the Jugendstil style

SKU: 8350304

One of our newest acquisitions is offered for your perusal and consideration. This vase is copper with just the most restrained use of brass on the four vertical spires. Made by the Kayser company in their Bockum factory in the Krefeld, near Dusseldorf, Germany, this vase shows elements of the Jugendstil (Youth style) linear design that had a strong influence in Germany and is regarded as the German counterpart to the Art Nouveau movement. The vase has been quartered by the four vertical spires, rising from a curvaceous notched ovoid shape which sits on the widest swell of the vase. There is hammered work to further separate the design from the body of the vase. The vase stands 7 ½” (190mm) tall and is 3 3/8” (86mm) at its widest point. This is a pre-owned item of 100+ years in age – overall condition is surprisingly good but there are a few small dents and marks, not considered to detract from the eye-catching impact of this beautiful piece.

  • 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.
