Art Nouveau Kayserzinn Box by J. P. Kayser & Sohn

Art Nouveau Kayserzinn Box by J. P. Kayser & Sohn

55.00

This antique jewellery or trinket box is a classic example of Art Nouveau design from Germany at the turn of the 20th century.

Created (and stamped) by the Kayser company, it is made from 'Kayserzinn' - a material unique to Kayser, it is an alloy of silver and tin.

This mix results in a striking patina (as you can see from the photos) and a strong and sturdy manufacture.

The designers at Kayser had one aim - to create everyday objects that were designed in the Jugenstil style that would be accessible to as many people as possible. 

This box is a perfect example of their ambition.

The box does show some wear but only commensurate with its age.

The piece's dimensions are:

Length: 15 cm / 6 inches
Width: 11 cm / 4.25 inches
Height: 7 cm / 2.8 inches
Weight: 315 grams
