In an effort to creep into your internet lives on a more regular basis I have opted to post design tid-bits from my back catalogue. I will still be bringing you more thoughtful posts but I hope these morsels will fill the void when I am otherwise engaged. Not sure how this will work, but comment if you wish, make a guess as to what it is and perhaps I will follow-up with insights. Best regards to all at the start of this new week...AR
Update: This repousse silver detail comes from a surprisingly factory made coffeepot.
It was designed by Fritz Schmoll von Eisenwerth in 1913 for the firm of P. Bruckmann & Sons of Heilbronn. Jugendstil designs such as these always remind me the German expression of art nouveau really had the jump on art deco by more than a decade. If you squint just right you would almost think it was by Sue et Mare.

While the flowers pack a visual punch, the handle is quite exquisite as well.
