The Prismenschliff Jardinière marks a milestone in the cooperation between Lobmeyr and Josef Hoffmann. The precise cut of this design demonstrates the mastery of the Viennese workshop's crystal cutters. Hoffmann's original drawing shows four round feet at the base that would have had to be glued to the vase. The feet were crossed out of the drawings by Hoffmann and Lobmeyr who both wanted to keep the integrity of the design solely involving a pure crystal-cutting performance.
