Silver-plated bronze vase, designed by Gustav Gurschner, manufactured by K.K. Kunst-Erzgiesserei Wien, ca. 1905, signed
Gustav Gurschner is among the most famous Austrian sculptors of the 20th century. His remarkable talent and his extensive artistic education allowed him to create some of the best works of the Wiener Jugendstil, among them the king’s obelisk in Veszprém in 1908, the Emperor’s monument of Hohenelbe around 1916 and the portrait of King Edward the VII. of England.
This typical Gurschner vase, which was, like most of his bronze designs, cast by the k.k. Kunstgießerei Wien, bears a Celtic-type of relief pattern. The upper, silver-plated and ornate part offers a thrilling contrast to the dark, patinated base. These bronzes with Celtic decorations achieve top prices on the market and are in high demand among collectors.
Signed with "GURSCHNER"
