Lot Essay

The delicate contrasting floral marquetry of this gueridon is characteristic of the Viennese production of the late 18th century. The finely chased neo-classical ormolu mounts relate to the oeuvre of the Viennese court gold and silversmith Joseph Ignaz Wurth (d. 1792), whose distinctive refined style gained him much acclaim at the Imperial Court in the last quarter of the 18th Century.
