What value would an Art Nouveau pot metal box made and signed by F. Madurell whose design has the standard features of a woman's head/face, water lily leaves and fronds have? This is not French, I am sure.

Dear tigmo, The value of that box - depending on the condition the object is in - can be roughly estimated at about $170 to $230. Judging from the description, I am quite certain that the box in your possession is of the same kind as one that was offered at the Swiss art auction house Galerie Koller last year. It was described as follows: "Box with lid, silver-plated tin, c. 1900. Square shaped, plastically decorated with a woman's head and water lilies, signed F. Madurell. Length 25 centimeters. Estimated value 300 to 400 Swiss Francs." http://www.internationalauctioneers.com/int/lot_detail.asp?LotID=1686&AucID=6210 Regards, Scriptor Search terms successfully used: Madurell jugendstil ://www.google.de/search?hl=de&newwindow=1&q=Madurell+jugendstil&btnG=Suche&meta=

Thank you. You did answer my question which wasn't well worded. I should have asked about F. Madurel and the Art Nouveau movement in Barcelona along with his work with Gaudi. Thanks very much. Great information.
