This astounding vessel from mouth-blown Crystal was executed after an undated design drawing by Josef Hoffmann from the Lobmeyr archive. Forty Torus-shaped rings are cut with a tiny stone wheel into the Crystal, polished to a satin surface and brightly faceted by Lobmeyr's Master-Cutters at the edges.
The edition is limited to 180 pieces, each signed.
The vessel was first presented in 2003 as part of the 100-year anniversary exhibition of the Wiener Werkstätte in Adolf Loos' house in Vienna.
