Gitterkorb Basket, Circa 1905

Josef Hoffman, sterling silver and ivory

According to Google translate, gitterkorb means lattice basket, so the description is a bit redundant when translated as lattice basket basket. Stunning piece of work from 1905 that reminds me of the Chrysler Building.

Gitterkorb at Sotheby's, auction estimate $20,000-$30,000
