Brass with enamel

Josef Hoffmann was one of the most active designers of the Wiener Werkstatte. Amongst his most renowned works are enamelled pieces of jewellery, which were partly produced by the Wiener Werkstatte and partly by the enterprise of Johann Souval in Vienna.
Enamelled pieces of jewellery have been produced by the highest quality standards and are very popular on the art market. This brooch in particular shows strong, bright colours and the elegant, floral design gives it a marvellous appearance. It is in perfect condition and signed “WW” at the back.
