A distinct Josef Hoffmann-design influence is seen upon the Vienna Secession wine, or Champagne, cooler. A flat paneled top rises above concentrically banded ribbing. A geometric pattern in relief is reminiscent of Hoffmann's gitterwerk designs. Made in Vienna by the Argentor workshop circa 1905, located in Wimbergerstrasse. The well-regarded firm was founded by Ernst Russ and Adolf Willhelm Hetzel. Illustrated in an early Argentor-Werk catalogue, page 86. 8 3/4" H., 12 1/4" W. to handles
