Josef Hoffmann was one of the most active designers of the Wiener Werkstatte. Amongst his most renown works are also enamelled pieces of jewellery which were partly produced by the Wiener Werkstatte and partly produced by the enterprise of Johann Souval in Vienna.
Enamelled pieces of jewellery have been produced by the highest quality standards and are very popular on the art market. This belt buckle in particular shows typical secessionist colours and the elegant design gives it a marvellous appearance.
