While St. Pölten architect Hans Ofner had his
architect's office in the first district of Vienna, at Opernring 19, he created
exceptional designs for pieces of decorative art, sculptures, silver objects,
as well as complete sets of furniture. He was very well known far beyond the
city limits of the royal residence and capital of Vienna. With astonishing
ease, he created the designs for numerous exquisite masterpieces of Vienna
Jugendstil. The three pieces of furniture presented here come from the
apartment of royal officer Wrann's family.

As Ofner's advertising postcard from 1908 proves, the
three pieces were probably also shown at his exhibition at Kunstsalon
Zimmermann in Munich, Maximilanstrasse 38.
