The architect and designer Otto Prutscher designed works for Bakalowits, Lobmeyr, the Wiener Werkstätte, as well as works he commissioned himself for various exhibitions, executed by Loetz. This piece was probably commissioned for the Cooperative of Austrian Artists exhibition in 1929. Prutscher typically drew inspiration from Loetz's earlier works - here he was channeling Koloman Moser's "Streifen und Flecken" decor.
