For the Casino in Baden near Vienna Oswald Haerdtl designed this lovely wall sconce. With this he excels in his own floral style by creating a flower bouquet in brass and crystal.
The metal structure is carefully welded and polished to create the delicate organic branches. These are then decorated with lead-free and hand-polished crystal in a multitude of colours.
The most difficult task with this item apart from making the structure is to affix the crystal in a gravitydefying manner to create the blossoms and leaves.
