{Antique German REPOUSSE Silver Roses Napkin, Letter or Card Holder}


Offering here a very rare and unique Antique German REPOUSSE Silver Roses Napkin, Letter or Card Holder for either the Office or your Tea Table. It is such an elegant addition. Below this post you find more links with also photos as a Card Holder. Hope you enjoy this special piece of silver work by German Silversmith Christoph Widmann since 1919. 
Here you see the front side of this exceptional silver piece in Repousse Roses.
I used it here as a holder for cocktail napkins to be used for hors d'oeuvres or tea.
This is available at my ZenCart powered on line boutique Mariette's Back to Basics: Antique REPOUSSE Silver Roses Napkin or Card Holder. Feel free to share!
Now showing you the equal back side of this fine master piece in silver.
Again showcasing the beautiful hand crocheted lace table topper by blogger Friend Susan's Mama from Ava Grace's Closet.
Back to the front and a bit closer...
Our last Gardenias look great with this masterpiece!
A real closeup...

Once more, thanks to the help of Johanna Gehrlein's exceptional book about Silver Rose tableware I found all the info in her book: Rosen-Bestecke 
THANKS a lot Johanna! 
Do you love anything roses?

  5. Dear Mariette,
    its always nice to see such precious things as they start to become seldom. The napkin holder ist really gorgeous and the hand crocheted tabletopper is a masterpiece, too. I love how you displayed both. So nice to see that my book could give you some more informations about the maker.
    Thank you for featuring it.
    Best greetings, Johanna

    1. Dearest Johanna,
      Oh definitely your book Rosen-Bestecke helped me out big time! I can't thank you enough for this excellent book and am so glad I was one of the first to get one.
      Indeed, such pieces are becoming very rare. It would be lovely for any office to hold letters or cards or for using at a tea table... Thanks for your compliments on the display and on the crocheted table topper by friend Susan's Mama. That goes hand in hand with such beautiful silver!
      Hugs,

      It certainly is a true piece of art. Nowadays they hardly can produce anything like this...

  21. Hello Mariette, You are so good at seeking out these rose-laden antiques that express your personality. Perhaps I will start noticing them more, now that you have pointed them out. In Chinese art, however, I believe there are very few roses, unless you count the family relationship of plum and cherry blossoms.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Thank you Jim, you are such an excellent writer with a very broad knowledge. You are right, Chinese art is quite different from any European Old World patterns. But both hold their own charm.
      Wishing you a great week ahead.
      Hugs,
      Mariette
