This barrel is one of the absolute masterpieces of the Viennese tradition of formal reduction. It was designed by one of the most important silversmiths of the period, Alois Würth, whose father was a silversmith to the Royal and Imperial Court. The slightly domed lid sits immaculately on a cylindrical body and is an impressive feat of hand production. Both the lid and the body of the box are carefully hand-hammered and polished according to traditional methods. 

First Edition produces the classic designs of 19th-century Viennese silversmiths, using the original techniques pioneered by Biedermeier master craftsmen. The company has the privileged access and knowledge to ensure that all First Edition objects remain faithful to the originals.

This item is eligible for a maximum Member's discount of 10%.
