Very fine Vienna Secession silver box. Exquisite example created in the well-known Alexander Sturm silver workshop in Vienna, circa 1922-32. Possibly designed by Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956). Prior to 1903 Sturm made designs for Hoffman, prior to the founding of the Wiener Werkstatte, again resuming Hoffmann designs circa 1932, when Wiener Werkstatte closed. Examples of Sturm silver have been featured in exhibits at the Neue Galerie in New York. Stamped marks for A. Strum as well as 900 Fine Siver mark. 2 1/2" H., 5 3/8" W., 6 7/8" L.
