Certain Things I Stalk: Dagobert Peche

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 Werkst├Ątte, 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?

The Masculine Jelly



A summer necessity?



Perhaps, yes.
