Josef Hoffmann was the jack-of-all-trades of the Wiener Werkstatte. A large part of the success of the Wiener Werkstatte lies in the designs made by him. This two bowls were made around 1906 and bear the renown “cloverleaf” decoration that very early designed by Josef Hoffmann. Silver objects like these are rarely seen on the art market and reach high prices at international auctions. The fine craftsmanship paired with the elegant design make these two silver bowls really stand out in every collection.
