Extremely Very Rare German WMF 1920s Art Deco Silver plated Racing Motorcyclist Model. Here we have an amazing silver plated motorcyclist which is fully hallmarked, WMF EP 1/0 AS EP electro plated, 1/0 depth if silver used, AS antique silver the hallmarks are situated on the rear tyre bellow the mud guard. WMF also stained the rider and the bike in some areas with a little light brown glaze, for an authentic look oil, road grime? , I like the effect and of course its original, however it can easily be removed should you prefer the silver look, but i believe it would de-value the piece.The detail is fabulous, very Art Deco and the rider is simply amazing, great facial features. This piece is of a very high quality and wonderful craftsmanship, as you you would expect from one of the worlds best metal ware company WMF.
There is very little silver loss if any, as it has had a protective varnish when WMF applied the toning, everything on the statue is in excellent clean condition, no dents or heavy scratches, everything tight and secure, it defiantly looks the part, but for complete accuracy, the previous owner wasnt sure if the base was replaced as the back wheel (near side only) shows minor solder to the base, but please checkout my photos which act as a part of my description. Please checkout the photos as they are an important part of the description and will reflect the quality, condition and style of this beautiful WMF racing motorcyclist better than I can describe. All in all this is a stunning piece of classical art Deco / Nouveau by WMF , its a genuine antique and considering its over a 100 years its in excellent condition.
