Luxurious bronze waves cover the smooth silhouette of the walnut case. Its frivolity, playfulness in the seemingly casually mentioned functions; of a bookshelf, a little bit of a secretary, and of a chest . Under the double-winged upper display case, there is a working area with a hinged lid.
Provenance: Private estate in the Schleswig-Holstein region. 19th century.
The grand buffet-showcase in the Art Nouveau style of the early 20th century. The beginning of the world-creation, the synthesis of the universe and the family, the family hearth - in this grandiose projection of the world tree. It stylizes the shape of the world tree crown, the motifs of sprouting shoots, and flowers.
The double-leafed glass case supplemented by lateral drop-shaped segments gives the impression of a growth crown. Its movement to the top and solidity begins with the root system of the legs and shoots of grass on the dull folds of the lower cabinet. The idea of the world tree, the core of the universe, is included in everyday life and overshadows family meals and ennobles everyday life. Symmetry, teardrop-shaped glazing and the motif of buds in the entablature make relatives her with the aesthetics of art nouveau.
Graceful silhouette, the organic unity of forms subordinated to the idea of flowering and fragrance. Includes a four-tiered showcase with side shelves. According to modern fashion, combines closed and open volumes with a dominant twilight of the mysterious central caesura. A whole and pure example of Art Nouveau.
