A TRio of Art Deco Silver plated WMF Ikora vases


A trio of Art Deco brushed metal silver plated Ikora vases from WMF (Wurttembergische Metallwarenfabrik) Germany,designed in 1934. The black stripes are inlaid enamel. Marked to base WMF (Lighthouse in a circle on a hill ) GERMANY SILVERPLATE

The entire range of Ikora metalwork was produced by WMF from the early 1920s until the 1960s.The “Ikora” finish on metalwares was accomplished by applying layers of coatings in a partial chemical, partial thermal process that could be mass-produced but appeared handcrafted. Ikora was first marketed in 1927, and the most valuable pieces have strong Art Deco or Bauhaus forms.
The name "Ikora" comes from a plant with brilliantly coloured flowers native to south-east Asia sacred to the goddess Ixora and was adopted by WMF to convey the costly and exclusive quality of this range.
