Luxury Design, Past & Present
Josef Hoffmann was the all rounder genius at the Wiener Werkstatte, there was no field of interest that he did not work in. Even in saddler’s métier he created some very successful designs. This leather purse was crafted after a blueprint of Josef Hoffmann. It bears the three-line mark "Wiener Werk Stätte" in gold and is in a good shape. The most striking fact is the use small but modern ornaments as an element of design on these purse. The gold fills the objects with elegance and uniqueness while the black leather rounds up the optic appearance of this precious object.
