Austrian Secessionist Creamer - Hallmark of Pitcher

Postby WesternPA » Sat Apr 11, 2020 9:53 pm

Hi,

I am hoping to understand this hallmark on an Austrian piece - it is of a handled pitcher, and appears to be a maker's mark rather than a tax mark or region mark. The marks appear on a very small bachelor's tea service creamer in a Jugenstil / Secessionist manner. Thanks!

Hello, looks like the mark of Eduard Friedmann from Vienna. A pic of the whole piece would be nice. Regards, Bahner

Hi,

Here are some pictures of this very small (bachelor sized) creamer / cream pitcher. Thanks! I will have to check out the designs of the designers mentioned, to see if this conforms to any of their styles.

Best,
Cliff

Hi,
Beautiful,clean Vienna Secession design;biomorphic wavy lines, purified from every remnant of old style design,therefore justifying the name Art Nouveau.
Regards
