Gertraud von Schnellenbuhel, Candlestick, 1910-13

Silver brass. 48,5 cm in hight. Munchner Stadtmuseum.

"Gertraud von Schnellenbuhel was influenced by Endell and was similar to him in his use of plenty of braided lines. This 24 arms candlestick, his master-piece, was acquired by Hermann Obrist, mentor of August Endell."

Scanned and quoted from the book "Art Nouveau" by Gabriele Fahr-Becker.
