Synopsis: At the end of the nineteenth century, W rttembergische MetallwarenFabrik, or the W rtemberg Electro Plate Company as the firm was known outside Germany, was the world's largest manufacturer and exporter of household metalware. At its height, over 6,000 workers were employed in Germany, Poland and Austria, and almost 10,000 designs for objects ranging from teaspoons to enormous table centrepieces were produced. Widely known by its initials WMF, the company sometimes employed the services of leading German designers of the day, but for the most part the wares were in a popular Jugendstil style, the German version of Art Nouveau.

Book Description Ein unverzichtbares Quellenwerk zum Gebrauchsdesign des Jugendstils, wie er in der Metallwarenfabrik, die hierzulande jedes Kind als WMF kennt, hergestellt wurde. Bereits in den frühen Jahren nach der Gründung noch im 19. Jahrhundert war die Firma einer der größten Arbeitgeber in Deutschland, mit rund 6000 Arbeitnehmern und einem Programm von etwa 10 000 Metall-Artikeln für den Hausgebrauch, vom Teelöffel bis zum Kerzenleuchter. Die Firma mauserte sich rasch zu einem wichtigsten, größten Exporteure und legte bereits 1906 für den eigenen Showroom in London einen englischsprachigen Katalog vor, der mit handgezeichneten Illustrationen versehen war und auch für damalige Zeiten wohl ein beachtliches Investment bedeutet hatte. Natürlich sind die Originale dieses Kataloges längst nicht mehr verfügbar - ein gelungener Reprint aber liegt hier nun vor: ein Kapitel Design- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte »Made in Germany« und ein wesentlicher Beitrag zur Entwicklung des Gebrauchsdesigns und des Jugendstils in Europa, ein wesentliches Quellenwerk für Sammler, Händler, Liebhaber! (Text englisch, ACC) 21,5 x 28 cm, 392 Seiten, 3500 s/w-Abb., 13 Farbtafeln, geb. Bookseller Inventory # 616435
