A prime example of the hand craftsmanship in metalwork that characterizes the work of Josef Hoffmann and the Wiener Werkstätte. The Wiener Werkstätte was a “productive cooperative of artisans” aimed at reviving quality craftsmanship and public interest in design. The community included artists, designers and architects who worked in many mediums including silver, ceramics, fashion, graphic arts, and furniture. The movement was a
pioneering force in modern design, influencing the styles of Bauhaus and Art Deco. This vase stands on a flared base that supports a ribbed body of undulating form with hand-hammered texture throughout. The base bears the metal punches of the Wiener Werkstätte:
“WIENER/WERK/STATTE”, “JH” (for Josef Hoffmann), the WW logo and the rose mark, the
company registered trademark for silver and gold.
