An Austrian Secessionist Silver Tray

A beautiful example of Austrian Secessionist design, this fine solid silver tea tray was made circa 1900 and is of beautiful design and quality. The tray is in a lovely condition and features floral embellishments on the left and right hand side and near the handles.

The Vienna Secession was formed in 1897 by a group of Austrian artist who had resigned from the Association of Austrian Artist, to object to the prevailing conservatism with its traditional orientation toward Historicism. It included a variety of artists, including painters, sculptors, architects and silver workers. 

Unlike other movements, there is not a single style that unites their work, as secession artists were concerned with, above all else, exploring the possibilities of art outside the confines of academic tradition.

The tray weighs 1.2 kilos and measures 55 by 34 centimetres (21.7 by 13.4 inches).
