Here for sale is a fantastic antique arts and crafts copper and brass box. Made by Orivit AG and is fully marked by the maker. The company was founded in 1894. From 1900 the company used the Orivit AG hallmark. Their leading designs of the period won them recognition at the Paris (1900) and St Louis (1904) World Exhibitions - however by 1905 the company was in financial problems and was acquired by WMF. WMF produced items with the Orivit mark until 1914. We can therefore date the box from 1900 to 1914. Hand beaten with a centurion to the top.
Wonderful patina to copper and beautifully handmade.
One of the sides of the box is split. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
We are a family company and love sourcing unusual pieces which bring a burst of individual style to the most modern of interiors, creating interiors with soul!
