Professor August Eisenmenger and Professor Josef Storck from the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts designed a serving platter for Ludwig Lobmeyr’s glass manufactory. The oval platter made of crystal glass is decorated with Triton und Nereid, which were engraved into the glass based on a drawing by August Eisenmenger. The glass platter in the style of Neo-Baroque is a good example for historical consumer glassware from Vienna crafted with ultimate perfection.
