Jugendstil Tea Strainer


Silver-Plate Tea Strainer

Made in Germany c.1910/20’s

A silver-plate Jugendstil tea-strainer produced in Germany.

Jugenstil is the name given to the Germanic form of Art Nouveau; the name came from a prominent arts magazine of the time Die Jugend .

As one might expect; Jugendstil (with its affiliations with the Vienna Secession) differed slightly from the more famous French Art Nouveau style; this piece is a good example of the differences. The fluid lines and ornamentation are present; but there also exists a strict and austere quality.

Dimensions: Length - 140mm

Condition: Silver-Plate in good condition; some wear consistent with age
