Wiener Werkstatte Postcard Design for Fabrics

Wiener Werkstätte Postcard. New Year by E. Wimmer

Authentic Wiener Werkstaette postcard, design for fabrics by Architect E. Wimmer.

New Year’s wishes in Hebrew and German.

Unused, very good condition.

Wiener Werkstaette evolved from the Vienna Secession, founded in 1897 as a progressive alliance of artists and designers. From the start, the Secession had placed special emphasis on the applied arts, and its 1900 exhibition surveying the work of contemporary European design workshops prompted the young architect Josef Hoffmann and his artist friend Koloman Moser to consider establishing a similar enterprise.
