Luxury Design, Past & Present
In addition to the variety of decorative objects designed by the Hagenauer brothers, there are also plenty of utility items that have been refined with their unique style. These range from candleholders and ashtrays all the way to hand mirrors.
A nice example is this paper knife with a silhouette of a horse, elegantly fitted into the round handle. Representations of animals were a constant motif of the Hagenauer brothers and thus this object is a further demonstration of the fine craftsmanship of the Hagenauer workshop in Vienna.
