    Description

    This small Secessionist bowl may have been modeled after an ancient vessel, possibly a single-handled tallow lamp. With its out-of-time shape and Celtic patterns, it perfectly embodies the eclectic taste of Gustav Gurschner, who designed numerous ornamental objects, sculptures, lamps, candlesticks and vases around 1900. The wall is quadruple decorated with a Celtic knot pattern. A Celtic spiral knot is worked all around the shouldered upper part of the ovoid bowl, which with its scroll bands also reflects very well the Viennese Secessionist taste of the time.

    The vase is both marked and signed.

    Artist

    Gustav Gurschner (Muehlendorf am Inn, Germany 1873 - 1971 Vienna) is among the most famous Austrian sculptors of the 20th century. He was a founding member of the Vienna Secession and president of the Künstlerverband Österreichischer Bildhauer (Association of Austrian Sculptors). As he lived in Paris for several years, one can recognize a clearly French influence in his characteristic, nature-related style. His remarkable talent and his extensive artistic education led him to create a large number of monuments and portraits, including the royal obelisk in Veszprém (Hungary) in 1908, the imperial monument of Hohenelbe (Czech Republic) before 1916 and a portrait of King Edward VII of England.
