Description & Technical information

1868 – Vienna – 1918


designed by: Koloman Mose attr., Vienna, 1903

When furnishing the apartment of Dr. Hans Eisler von Terramare's family, Koloman Moser designed and executed several such pieces of furniture. Especially the lead glass, the use of the maple wood, the wardrobe's shape and the back board that goes down to the floor clearly prove that Moser was the designer. So far, only pictures of partial views of the apartment are known. Therefore we cannot be sure whether the wardrobe was really part of its furniture.
