In his book "Wiener Werkstätte, Kunst und Handwerk 1903-1932, Wien", published by Brandstätter in 1982, Werner J. Schweiger lists this piece of furniture on page 79 as designed by Koloman Moser, Wiener Werkstätte. Even though some parallels to K. Moser furniture can be identified, I think that this very beautiful, delicate piece of furniture, created entirely in the spirit of the Vienna Secession, was not designed by this great master.
