WMF ADAC trophy inkwell, 1913

WMF (Wurtembergische Machinefabriken) ‘A.D.A.C (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club) Trophy’, 1913

A fine silvered desk companion in the form of an Edwardian racing car, the driver and riding mechanic hunched forward in concentration. The hinged bonnet is hand-stamped ‘A.D.A.C Wagenfaht, 1913’, and the rear tonneau, with blue and white enamelled ADAC logo opens to reveal a lower storage compartment.

The front section, with ornate scrolls and acanthus leaf decoration, acts as the pen tray. In very good original finish, the piece has stamped registration marks to the rear edge with a full complement of marks for WMF. German, circa 1913.
