Wiener Werkstätte Jewellery

 

Jewellery produced as part of the Wiener Werkstätte movement is highly sought-after at auction. A movement formed in Vienna in 1903, the Wiener Werkstätte was established by the architect Josef Hoffmann, graphic designer Jutta Sika and patron Fritz Waerndorfer as a 'co-operative of artisans' in Vienna. The jewellery output from the movement blends a range of styles, with an emphasis on 'artistic freedom.' Inspirations from the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Folk Art can be seen in Wiener Werkstätte jewels, with most pieces set in silver, with enamel and gemstone accents. Produced in a limited period from 1903 until 1932, Wiener Werkstätte jewellery is rare and highly coveted by international collectors.
