Eduard Wimmer-Wisgrill

This interesting chest of drawers came out of the Wiener-Werstatte. It was designed by Wimmer-Wisgrill in 1908. There are six layers stacked on top of one another. The rhythm of the geometry is enhanced by the darker ebony lines running around the rectangles. The outside of each layer has a stringing of mother-of-pearl. The inside of each of the drawers has the only curvilinear motifs in the entire design.

The golden wood is boxwood and the height of the piece is 56 inches.
