    This patinated, large bronze vase is lavishly decorated and the individual Celtic-like symbols such as the spiral and the loop square can be recognized in the details. The vase also has secessionist features, such as the surrounding sculptural dots wrapped around it, which go hand in hand with the period in which the object was created. The sequenced ornamental stripes harmoniously connect the upper and lower parts.
    This vessel, designed by Gustav Gurschner, was made by the K.K. Kunst-Erzgießerei around 1905. On the wall it bears the signature “GURSCHNER” and the model number “547 102”.


    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.
