    Ludwig Vierthaler hand-hammered patinated copper cabinet vase for Josef Winhart & Co., Kunstgewerbliche Werkstätten (Munich, Ger.), circa 1902. As with many Vierthaler pieces from this period there is a organic/tendril nature to the raised copper design work on this cabinet vase. The beautiful red patina on the vase was developed during Vierthaler's association with Josef Winhart & Co. and was accomplished by annealing and quenching the copper. The underside of the vase has a faint stylized "Eosin" mark, as well as the J. Winhart crest and a larger painted number, possibly referring to the model number or production code. Dimensions: 4.75”(H) x 4”(W).


    After many years as a silversmith and bronze caster with Tiffany & Co. in New York, Ludwig Vierthaler arrived in 1896 at the Royal College of Arts and Crafts in Munich. Shortly before 1900, he joined the metal workshop Josef Winhart & Co. in Munich, where he was the director of design. In 1906, he joined the services of Eugen Ehrenboeck, a competing Munich metal workshop and in the same year renamed, “E. & L Ehrenboeck Vierthaler.” In 1915, Vierthaler established a workshop and professorship at the College of Arts & Crafts in Hanover, Germany.
