Wiener Werkstatte

This little purse was bought in Austria and we feel it to be Wiener Werkstatte. More than 80 designers contributed to the WWs output over thirty years and there was a huge range in designs. The WW had a number of shops not only in Austria.





The small pouch with an angular design of straight interconnecting lines topped with stylised flowers and a spray of leaves, in deep red, dark blue, two shades of green, tan, brown and black beads, the background in gold beads, the crochet top in snuff colour cotton, with green twisted cord ties (replacements) 

4 x 2 3/4 in; 10 x 7 cm
