Luxury Design, Past & Present
This splendor cup was designed by Michael Powolny and executed by the famous Viennese enterprise J. & J. Lobmeyr. Completely covered with cut figurines and plant vines, this cup represents a peak of the creative power of both Michael Powolny and J. & J. Lobmeyr. An identical cup was presented at the Kölner Werkbundausstellung in the year 1914 and the Museum for Applied Arts Vienna also has a similar cup in their inventory.
