Wiener Werkstätte silver is in high demand at auction. With international collectors, silver produced as part of the Wiener Werkstätte movement achieves exceptional prices under the hammer. 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. With an emphasis on complete artistic freedom, Wiener Werkstätte drew inspiration from the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, and folk art movements. Producing pieces from 1903 up until 1932 when the co-operative ran into fininancial hardship, the output from Wiener Werkstätte, be it silver, ceramics, jewellery, fashion, furniture or the graphic arts, is highly sought-after.
