Ludwig Karl Maria Vierthaler
Spider Crab and Octopus Charger

1906

About

The undulating bumpy-textured octopus tentacle gracefully curling along and over the bowl’s folded rim is balanced by the rigid tension of the spider crab. The orange-red copper surface shows a prime example of Winhart & Co.’s trademark EOSIN patinations developed by Ludwig Vierthaler as well as a modern visual aesthetic derived from Japanese ukiyo-e with the bird’s-eye-view perspective and large area devoid of subject matter. LUDWIG VIERTHALER (1875-1967) Recognized for his technically superior and beautiful metal patinations for tableware, Munich born Ludwig Vierthaler’s designs and metalwork caught the attention of Tiffany & Co., NY, for whom he worked in the mid-1890s. 1906 proved to be a decisive year in his career. Though Vierthaler had left his position as the Director of Design at J. Winhart & Co. earlier that year, examples of his work for Winhart were shown along with collaborative work with Eugen Ehrenbock at the Bayerishe Jubilaums-Landers-Ausstellung in Nuremburg - for which he received a gold medal - and at the Deutsche Kunstgewerbe-Ausstellung in Dresden -for which he received a silver medal. He and Ehrenbock formalized their partnership in 1907. Vierthaler later expanded his metalwork output to include jewelry and lighting design as well as figural and ornamental building decoration design. A member of the Deutscher Werkbund, Vierthaler went on to become a full professor in Hanover at the Staaliche Handwerkerund Kunstgewerberschule and at the Technische Hochschule.
