Description & Technical information

Designed by: Franz Hagenauer, Vienna, around 1935

Executed by: Werkstätte Hagenauer, Vienna, 1936 until 1962

Wood, ebonized and polished, excellent original condition

The figure was also executed as a stag with antlers. In my view, the polished surface suggests that it is an early version of the late 1930s.

Sincere thanks to Dr. Maria-Luise Jesch, Austrian Museum of Applied Arts Vienna, Hagenauer archives for this information.
