around 1900 / silver-plated tin / Germany - Krefeld / good condition
Very nice, antique centrepiece made of silver-plated tin, consisting of one
coffee pot, a cream jug and a sugar bowl. The handle of the jug is made of wood.
The centrepiece dates back to the Jugendstil period, has a very nice patina
and is in good used condition.
It was produced in Germany, in the city of Krefeld in the Johann Peter Kayser metalworks. Hence the name Kayserzinn.
Kayserzinn is a trademark tin brand. It stands for extraordinary German Jugendstil tin.
Johann Peter (J. P.) Kayser conducted the parental metalware factory in Krefeld, Germany, in the Oppum district. His brother, Engelbert Kayser, took over the artistic direction of the company in 1894. In his Cologne Studio, he created numerous templates and models for the collection. Engelbert Kayser, who had opened a store for luxury goods in Cologne at the corner of high street and Bridge Street in 1864, brought Jugendstil, which had won a lot of significance in tin production around 1900. He employed the sculptor and artist Hugo Leven, Karl Geyer, Johann Christian Kröner, Hermann Fauser and Karl Berghof. With the production of Jugendstil objects, the tin foundry was very successful and had up to 800 employees during wedding season. There were lamps, candlesticks, picture frames, cups, vases, jars, writing sets, bowls, coffee, tea, beer, and liquor services in the product range.
The tin was made without the addition of lead, but rather antimony was added, which is a silvery and brittle semi-metal. From 1894/95 on, the foundry items were consecutively numbered on the underside of the foundry next to the relief designation KAYSERZINN from the number 4,000 onwards.
