Gustav Gurschner is among the most famous Austrian sculptors of the 20th century. His remarkable talent and his extensive artistic education allowed him to create some of the best works of the Wiener Jugendstil, among them the king’s obelisk in Veszprém in 1908, the Emperor’s monument of Hohenelbe around 1916 and the portrait of King Edward the VII. of England.

This typical Gurschner cauldron vase, which was, like most of his bronze designs, cast by the k.k. Kunstgießerei Wien, bears four vertical relief stripes and an interposed cross relief. The upper, light and ornate part offers a thrilling contrast to the dark base.
