I have these copper drinking "glasses " (what would you call a glass that isn't a glass?) They were made by the German Company WMF. It's mark shows that it was made between 1909 or 10 to 1914 when the mark changed. So what movement ...Nouveau,  Deco or  Jugendstil

Aren't they gorgeous???

Art Nouveau - ca. 1890 - 1910 roughly is the era. Glasses that are not glass can be called "goblet, Tumbler or drinkware" They are cool! :)

thank you!!.. I don't know why my brain freezes at drinkware or tumbler. It's not like I never heard those word before  :-)

I've got them up on Etsy...I need to edit the listing so I don't sound like a schumck

They are right on the edge of both eras!

They an also be termed as being 'Arts & Crafts' Vicki is bang-on with the date.

There's nothing particularly Art Deco or Art Nouveau about them. They're a little on the Neoclassical side if anything.

Actually I believe they're Art Deco, not sure why I didn't see it at first. Definitely not Nouveau! And yes, very nice "glasses"!
