There are certain objects I stalk without reason, salivating over items in auction catalogs whose estimates are far, far beyond my means. Ah well. Among the things I follow closely are objects associated to the Wiener Werkstätte, and particularly Dagobert Peche.
This vase in the upcoming LAMA auction has me in raptures --
Textiles (in this case, used by Poirret for a gown) --
Laces (sample book from a Wright auction of early this year) --
And museum pieces that I would take up cat burglary to call my own:
Look at these strawberries!
And of course my favorite Adelphi paper, which is heavily influenced by Pesce's work.
Sigh. Will I ever have some Pesce to call my own?
